Negotiated Symbolism

Donna Haraway (1985), in her article, A manifesto for cyborgs, describes three blurred boundaries:

  1. human and animal
  2. human and machine
  3. physical and non-physical or virtual
Figure 1.  Physical and Non-Physical or Virtual

Figure 1. Physical and Non-Physical or Virtual

To me, this image represents the boundary between physical and non – physical or virtual.  Our current cultural climate demands the use of technology to stay connected and “grow” our knowledge, skills and attitudes.
