Technology and Desire
The Transgressive Art of Moving Images
Distributed for Intellect Ltd
At the cutting edge of science, technology, and media philosophy, Technology and Desire argues that innovations in digital media technology are behind a growing shift toward digitally enhanced realism in the arts and, in particular, the art of the moving image. Drawing on cultural studies, media theory, art history, and more to provide exemplary evidence of this shift, this book has as its central theme the question of whether images are predicated upon transgressing the boundaries of their framing—and whether in the course of their existence they develop a life of their own.
