Media in mind

Reynolds, Daniel

There is a hidden question at the heart of media studies, so fundamental that it has largely remained implicit and unexamined. Where do you end, and where do media begin?

Through analyses of films and video games from 1900 to the present, 'Media in Mind' shows how media forms and technologies challenge dominant models of perception and mental representation, and how they complicate theoretical understanding of concepts like the platform and the interface
