'Arguing for the need to rethink established positions on aura, subjectivity, time and space, Collins shows that we are defined not just by the struggle between the futuristic and anachronistic but by the way in which the old and the 'already said' is today constantly repackaged and decidedly the 'still being sad'. The jargon of post-modernity becomes easily understood through case STUDIES WHICH MAKE SENSE of cyberpunk fiction, music, film, TV, and contemporary architecture.' --Rob Shields, Carleton UniversitySynopsis:
Given the rapid changes in consumer and industrial electronics, the tremendous critical and popular interest in new technology and their effect on our lives is not surprising. Architectures of Excess brings the way we think about technology up to date. Instead of thinking about technology as only overwhelming (too much confusion, too much information), the book shows how that very excess is being mastered and is transforming pop culture itself.
