Hi Simon et all,

First, thank you once again Simon for a most stimulating week of discussion.

Within all of this fascinating discussion on the "screen" it strikes me as simply amazing that not one person has referenced the incisive work of a colleague, Anne Freidberg - "Window Shopping: Cinema and the Postmodern" (1994) and "The Virtual Window: From Alberti to Microsoft" (2006) and http://thevirtualwindow.net/

Its been said that she subjected the common linguistic tropes of visual representation, including "window," "screen", and "the virtual" to rigorous analysis, analysis that in many cases rendered commonly accepted definitions inadequate.

It might be worth a moment of your time to take a look -

" The present age prefers the sign to the thing signified, the copy to the original, fancy to reality, 
the appearance to the essence 
for in these days
 illusion only is sacred, truth profane."

Ludwig Feuerbach, 1804-1872
