Of course, from a nonalphabetic standpoint such as that of Chinese orthography, its demise might seem less impossible I. Mary Caroline Richards New York: Grove Press,p. Andre Leroi-GourhanGesture and Speeclz, trans.
Anna Berger Cambridge, Mass.: MIT Press,p. Leroi-Gourhan asks us to imagine our present, overwhelmingly alphabetic graphic practices as archaic. In an immediate empirical and manual sense that is not difficult: But this seems not to be in the direction of his prediction.
Of course, it is possible that existing graphic practices are in the process of rendering the alphabet archaic. The present text is an elaboration of the last section of that essay. What Leroi-Gourhan points to is not another move in an old battle between pictures and words, but a new medium: And the operative term here is body.
Leroi-Gourhan, Gesture and Speech above, n. Firstly, beyond the written mark: Technology Beyond Writing Ann Arbor: But against notational media are the practices, apparatuses, and modes of capture that constitute nonsymbolic media. Is there any reason-biological, theoretical, or practical-why movement could not similarly be mediated?
The answer is yes, in fact there could: Thus, within traditional theatrical and ceremonial discourse one talks of imitation, mimicry, copying, and quotation as modes of capture, in which the human body and voice are used to capture the movements, postures, and sounds of humans and also of animals and machines.
Abstract expressionism exhausted itself long ago, its relation to the traced body of the artist giving way to the live mobile presence of his or her body in performance art, or by a transfer of embodi- 6.
Motion capture is able to avoid mere residues, and on the contrary delivers a form of kinematic writing not confined to such stationary traces. Some examples of mousegrams can be found on this site. In both cases, the resulting data set of sampled readings contains the information needed to construct a reproduction of the original actual or potential motion of the chosen aspects of the body in an unlimited series of situations.
Two differences, however, should be noted. Released from their originating situations and instantiations, they can be reterritorialized onto a still-proliferating range of physical situations and reembedded within any number of contexts.
The result is a form of transposed physicality: Likewise, though subject to different technological and cultural imperatives, captured forces operating via force-feedback devices are enabling varied forms of haptic action at a distance."When you think of a title for a book, you are forced to think of something short and evocative, like, well, 'The Virtual Community,' even though a more accurate title might be: 'People who use computers to communicate, form friendships that sometimes form the basis of communities, but you have to be careful to not mistake the tool for the task and think that just writing words on a screen is.
I Quit! -. The Business of Writing.
Quitting seems quite common; often when reading through old threads on writing boards from two or three years ago I’ve clicked on someone’s book links and they’re sitting on Amazon either never having sold a copy or way down past a million in the rankings, and the writer has never released another book.

Apr 18, · The Victorian era was a strange time which was not nearly as restrained and prudish as reputation holds. It was a time when everyone was exploring the world around them, and sometimes, that meant looking at the world they couldn’t see, either. Mathew is a fixture of our community hours at Corporeal Writing and has been working a lot with Domi J Shoemaker.
