Beautiful circuits : modernism and the mediated life/Mark Goble
Beautiful circuits : modernism and the mediated life/Mark Goble. p. cm. Includes bibliographical references and index. This book is about how modernism itself desired communication and the many forms it took, not just as a response to the power of media technologies in the twentieth century but as a way of insisting that this power was already modernism’s own.
The "mediated life" puts technology into communication with a series of shifts in how Americans conceive the mechanics and meanings of their connections to one another, and therefore to the world and to their own modernity. Mark Goble is associate professor of English at the University of California, Berkeley. See all Product description.

Goble shows how the assimilation of such old media technologies as the telegraph, telephone, and phonograph inspired fantasies of connection that informed a commitment to the materiality of artistic mediums. Describing how relationships made possible by technology became more powerfully experienced with technology, Goble explores a modernist fetish for media that shows no signs of abating.
