Omnitopia enacts a structural
and perceptual enclave whose apparently distinct locales convey inhabitants
to a singular place.
Think of it this way: When you
can flow from place to place, experiencing it all as one vast interior,
cocooned in your own bubble, interacting with other people and natural
parts of the world only as a series of objects, you're in omnitopia.
How does omnitopia work?
• Dislocation detaches a site from its surrounding
• Conflation merges disparate experiences
into a singular whole. [Learn
• Fragmentation splits a singular environment
into multiple perceptions. [Learn
• Mobility orients a place around movement
rather than stasis. [Learn
• Mutability enables the perpetual change
of a place. [Learn
Is this the first definition of omnitopia?
No. Given the many possible combinations
of the Latin root "omni" and Greek root "topos,"
mine is merely one articulation of omnitopia, not the first or only
one. Previous articulations include Dung Kai-cheung's reference to omnitopia
in his Chinese language book, The Atlas: Archeology of an Imaginary
City, and a videogame that refers to one of its levels as "omnitopia."
