For the upcoming ISEA 2006/Zero One San Jose Festival, I have been contemplating the theory of transvergence. This model was created for the Switch Online Journal for New Media Issue 20 to attempt to address the phenomena.

Is the phenomenon of transvergence something that exists within a single instance, or within relationships the instance shares with others?

While studying transvergence, I came to view it as the borrowing of skills and knowledgebases from various disciplines when required to fulfill a project.

The intent of this model was to view not only the differing skills and disciplines attributing to any individual project, but the ways a particular skill or discipline is unintentionally shared amongst an assortment of projects.
