Re: [-empyre-] ? == ?
the above statements have generated questions i would love to get the
criticalartware coreDev take on. Instead of asking the questions
directly, I will respond to each of the '=' statements with a quote,
which then I hope people will [extend/complicate/remix] - or just
does knew media == new media ?
is new media _rooted in known media ?
"In the name of 'progress,' our official culture is striving to force
the new media to do the work of the old." - MM
how do we know new media ?
"All media are extensions of some human faculty - psychic or physical." - MM
is knew media new ?
"Not only a systemic but also a utopian critique was implicit in video's
early use, for the effort was not to enter the system but to transform
every aspect it and - legacy of the revolutionary avant-garde project -
to redefine the system out of existence by merging art with social life
and making audience and producer interchangeable." - MR
is knew media gnu ?
"We are educating our computers faster than we are educating our young
people..." - Sol Linowitz (quoted in RBF)
"The clash naturally occurs in transitional periods." - MM
MR = Martha Rosler, Video: Shedding the Utopian Moment
RBF = R. Buckminster Fuller with Jerome Agel and Quentin Fiore, I Seem
To Be A Verb
MM = Marshall McLuhan & Quentin Fiore, The Medium is the Message
