Expanded Senses : Neue Sinnlichkeit Und Sinnesarbeit in Der Spätmoderne / New Conceptions of the
about this item
?This book undertakes a thoughtful, two-part study of the "expansion of the senses" provoked by the rise of new moving media images. The book appreciates, through a detailed interrogation of cinema's constitutive "cinaesthetic" experience, the blurring of the sensuous self and the transgression of borders already inscribed in media. It then explores the interplay among new media's moving images and the transformation of our sensuous and mental capacities through techniques of modulation, simulation, prosthetics, networking, and digital cartography, drawing on theories and frameworks from philosophy, sociology, and neurobiology.
