I'm a Map I'm a Green Tree
by Daniel Anderson

I'm talking about the ways we represent ourselves and our world. I've put some thoughts on the topic together here—a gathering that enacts new media creating and takes up conceptual layers like metaphors, models, and composing. The primary sources are videos from the Get a Mac campaign, aka I'm a Mac; I'm a PC ads. Posthuman concepts blending people and machines are also tuned into the mix.

The video performs the essay. The topic buttons load short explorations of some of the concerns.

Earlier versions of the video were presented at the 2010 Conference on College Composition and Communication and the 2010 Computers and Writing Conference. Thanks go out for all the feedback, especially the pointers toward Nietzsche and the advice about access.
