Future Cinema

Course Site for Future Cinema 1 (and sometimes Future Cinema 2: Applied Theory) at York University, Canada

Some questions for class…

All the required texts for this week (Hayles/Bush/Aarseth) were written ‘conventionally’. Why didn’t they attempt to articulate any of the methodologies they were advocating?

Why can’t narrative be conceived as a database, perhaps one that is more suited to the functioning of the human brain? Perhaps we need ambiguity (This is discussed to some extent @ around page 287 in the Hayles, but could be taken further IMO)?
