Centre de Design (DE) UQAM - Galerie du Centre de Design
Machines of Disquiet are a series of experimental web applications that aim to provide
various aesthetic and reading experiences based on Book of Disquiet by Fernando Pessoa.
Each of the applications is an attempt to find a new setting for experiencing the Book
of Disquiet as a sensitive matter. The title refers to the condition of machinic mediation
that defines digital objects, but these experimental applications are also understood
as “feeling machines,” “machines for making sense,” and “imagination machines.” The
Machines of Disquiet have been developed as a first iteration of author-function of the
LdoD Archive: Collaborative Digital Archive of the Book of Disquiet.
