Screen life

chapter
posted on 18.06.2019, 12:49 by Toby Miller
Whether we use the word “screen” to refer to smart cinema or stupid telephony, we need to engage it through twin theoretical prisms. On the one hand, it is a component of sovereignty that relates to territory, language, history, and education. On the other hand, it is a cluster of culture industries, subject to rent‐seeking practices, exclusionary representational protocols, and environmental destructiveness. We should examine screen life as it is lived and in ways that engage and criticize futurology, creative‐industries discourse, and waste.
