The Thing between You and Me

Hans-Jörg Pochmanns book “The Thing between You and Me” (BIRD / Birkhäuser, 2022) deals with the question concerning the sustaining support of digital objects. It is based on pochmans research, which aimed to challenge the habitualisation towards digital devices, the forgetting of the physical interface that leads to the supposition of digital immateriality. By handling computers as absurd things that escape language, Pochmann seeks to position himself among these strange and aloof digital entities and their effects.
