Book Description

Nanna Verhoeff’s new book is a must for anybody interested in visual culture and media theory. It offers a rich and stimulating theoretical account of the central dimension of our contemporary existence – interfacing and navigating both data and physical world through a variety of screens (game consoles, mobile phones, car interfaces, GPS devices, etc.) In the process of exploring these new screen practices, Verhoeff offers fresh perspectives on many of the key questions in media and new media studies as well as a number of new original theoretical concepts. As the first theoretical manual for the society of mobile screens, this book will become an essential reference for all future investigations of our mobile screen condition. – Lev Manovich

Deze studie geeft een terugblik op vormen van schermmedia; van het negentiende-­eeuwse panorama en het begin van de film, via snelwegpanorama's, schermen op straat, naar touchscreen-kunstinstallaties, draagbare spelcomputers en smartphones van vandaag de dag. Hoe kunnen we deze nieuwe technologieen bestuderen, in het licht van de voorgangers die ze hebben? Mobile Screens biedt een methodologisch voorstel van aanpak. Met een historisch-­vergelijkend, theoretisch perspectief worden de intersecties tussen mobiliteit en visualiteit uitgewerkt aan de hand van een reeks case studies. Het boek vertelt ons hoe we omgaan met schermen en hoe deze als interfaces ruimtelijke, temporele en haptische ervaringen mogelijk maken: principes van navigatie vormen een visueel 'format' dat ons denken stuurt. Hoe sturen principes van navigatie onze ervaringen met hedendaagse schermmedia?
