Overview

Vector has both magnitude and a direction. University of Guelph’s department of physics posited that in graphics, a vector is represented by an arrow, defining the direction, and the length of the arrow defines the vector's magnitude. Vectors allow the user to click and drag the mouse pointer from one end and direction to another. Therefore, Vectors project is like a vehicle that carries other projects from their designers and creators and publishes them through Vectors electronic journal online.

The Vectors project is an electronic journal which brings together other related technological/multimedia projects designed by different technologists and designers showing how technology is shaping and transforming the social constructs and cultural relations of the contemporary society. Vector publications cut across issues in several disciplines including socio-cultural, technological, globalization, mobility, power, etc. In a nutshell, Vectors project is a project comprising other projects that illustrate the influence of various technological designs on culture. Vectors journal is now in its third volume, issue 1 (vol. 3, issue 1), and is published twice a year. The current volume is entitled ‘difference’. The publication is under the auspices of School of Cinema Television, University of South California, United States. The current issue is comprised of 7 different projects, namely: Killer Entertainments; The RED Project; Nation on the Move; Deliberative Democracy and Difference; Programmed Visions; ThoughtMesh; and Blue Velvet. Each of these projects was designed with related technologies by different designers.



As an international academic and electronic journal, it brings together designers, web authors, visionary scholars, and technologists, to look into how technology is shaping, transforming, and configuring our social and cultural values and relations. Therefore, its audience and stakeholders includes those in the academic studies and research, students, lecturers, IT businesses, designers, technologists, etc.
