Book description

These 14 essays examine Georges Perec's impact on architecture, art, design, media, electronic communications, computing and the everyday.
What do Perec's descriptions of the minutiae of everyday life reveal about our use of information and communications technologies?What happens if we read Life: A User’s Manual as a toolbox of ideas for games studies?What light does the concept of the ‘infra-ordinary’ shed on social media?What insights does algorithmic writing generate for the digital humanities?What lessons can architects, artists, game-designers and writers draw from Perec's fascination with creative constraints?
Through an examination of such questions, this collection takes Perec scholarship beyond its existing limits to offer new ways of rethinking our present.
