Turning Point: Emerging Media and Social Justice Philanthropy
The idea of virtual realities has a long and complex historical trajectory, spanning from Plato's concept of the cave and the simulacrum, to artistic styles such as Trompe L'oeil, and more recently developments in 3D film, television and gaming. However, this book will pay particular attention to the time between the s to the s when virtual reality and cyberspace were represented, particularly in fiction, as a wondrous technology that enabled transcendence from the limitations of physical embodiment.
This extensively researched, sober treatment of a routinely misunderstood phenomenon is sure to make a seminal contribution to media theory and contemporary cultural history. A timely study of the development of virtual reality and its representation in contemporary film, television and popular literature. Tellige see raamat tutvumiseks meie kauplusesse!
