Objects of Media Studies
: Discrete Organization of Ideas?
This project reminds me of our seeming obliviousness to the temporal connections between aspects of our own lives, be they personal, scholarly, etc. For example, reflections I may make about media objects - movie stubs, cassettes, etc. - may occur separately but in a defined temporal space, such as over the course of a week. In recalling these reflection we may forget their temporal, and therefore potentially intellecual, proximity to other reflections. We prefer to think of them as discrete areas of thought, because it makes organization easier. What this project does is forces us to face the reality of implicit overlapping and encourage us to make it explicit.
