Editorialization is a key concept of our research. The term refers to the ensemble of dynamics that produce and structure digital space. These dynamics are the interactions of individual and collective stakeholders within a particular digital environment.

This paper will present and try to demonstrate three main theses: Digital space is actual space, the space in which we live. A space is a set of relationships between objects; in our contemporary society, space is a hybridization of connected and non-connected objects that are structured by writing. In digital space, writing occupies a fundamental position. Writing is the essential material of digital space. The web, which is an important part of digital space, is comprised of writing: everything on the web is written; even images and videos are code. Writing is the actual material of digital space. Digital space is best interpreted and understood using a performative paradigm. Digital space is not a representation of reality; it is, however, a particular way of producing and organizing reality. Two main notions will be proposed to illustrate these theses: the notion of editorialization and the notion of metaontology.

Rewriting the Trans-Canada Highway in the Digital Age

How can we think of space in the digital age? This project aims to explore this question by proposing both theoretical and practical avenues of reflection. The mythical space of the Trans-Canada Highway will be just as much the field of study as the field of exploration for our research.


Projet Profil

Initially conceived for strictly practical reasons, users’ profiles have little by little become unexpected spaces of self-expression and writing. This project aims to understand this new profiling structure, in order to analyze the theoretical and aesthetic issues at play.


Marcello Vitali-Rosati, « Qu’est-ce que l’éditorialisation? », Sens Public, mars 2016.

Cet article présente les résultats de huit ans de travail sur le concept d’éditorialisation, réalisés dans le cadre du séminaire international « Écritures numériques et éditorialisation » que j’ai coorganisé avec Nicolas Sauret depuis 2008. Je propose de définir l’éditorialisation comme l’ensemble des dynamiques qui produisent l’espace numérique. Ces dynamiques peuvent être comprises comme les interactions d’actions individuelles et collectives avec un environnement numérique. À partir de cette définition je propose de décrire le fonctionnement des instances d’autorité dans l’espace numérique.
