Virtual Anxiety: Photography, new technologies and subjectivity
Library Shelf Location 31.KEMB
Publication Date 06 Aug 1998
Description Examines the fears and hopes surrounding imaging, information and reproductive technologies. It offers a gendered and contextualized reading which is critical of the trend towards technological determinism and the new biology of machines, and addresses the relationship between photography and new imaging technologies in general. Concentrating on the contexts of medicine and law, this text contains research on body scanners and criminal identification technologies, as well as studies of the Visible Human Project and the murder of James Bulger. The book also draws on the monster myths of Frankenstein and Dracula to expose and parody the masculine unconscious in contemporary reproductive and information technologies.
