Vision, Memory and Media
Distributed for Liverpool University Press
The relationship among vision, memory, and media is of burgeoning interest to the arts, cultural studies, and sciences. This comprehensive introduction to the subject couples recent scientific research on memory with a broad cultural discussion about vision and media in the technological age. It features contributions by—and interviews with—artists and leading experts, among them Ali Hossaini, Lindsay Seers, media ecology expert Andrew Hoskins, and American cultural critic Norman Klein, illustrated by the works of contemporary artists whose practice exemplifies this dynamic. Clear, comprehensive, and up-to-date, Vision, Memory and Media presents the latest scientific and theoretical debates relating to memory studies, vision, and media.
