Download Programmed Visions: Software and Memory by Wendy Hui Kyong Chun PDF

By Wendy Hui Kyong Chun

New media flourishes on cycles of obsolescence and renewal: from celebrations of cyber-everything to Y2K, from the dot-com bust to the subsequent enormous issues -- cellular mobs, internet 3.0, cloud computing. In Programmed Visions, Wendy Hui Kyong Chun argues that those cycles lead to half from the ways that new media encapsulates a common sense of programmability. New media proliferates "programmed visions," which search to form and expect -- even embrace -- a destiny in response to previous information. those programmed visions have additionally made pcs, in response to metaphor, metaphors for metaphor itself, for a common good judgment of substitutability.

Chun argues that the readability provided by means of software program as metaphor may still make us pause, simply because software program additionally engenders a profound experience of lack of awareness: who is aware what lurks at the back of our smiling interfaces, at the back of the items we click on and control? the mix of what will be noticeable and never visible, identified (knowable) and never identified -- its separation of interface from set of rules and software program from -- makes it a strong metaphor for every little thing we think is invisible but generates seen, logical results, from genetics to the invisible hand of the industry, from ideology to tradition.

Wendy Hui Kyong Chun is Professor of recent tradition and Media at Brown collage. She has studied either platforms layout Engineering and English Literature.
