The Archaeology section of Ubiquity explores historical precedents for the artefacts and processes that we now know as ‘pervasive media’ and the ‘Internet of Things’. Ubiquity begins to unearth some of the ideas and artefacts that had the morphogenetic symptoms of contemporary media technologies and practices. These symptoms range from concepts manifest before their time and technologies that were out of sync with social or cultural preoccupations. The Archaeology of Ubiquity explores the genetic heritage of the things that surround us and the things that got lost on the way, disappearing down an evolutionary cul-de-sac or obliterated by faster smarter entities.
