The Book of Imaginary Media: Excavating the Dream of the Ultimate Communication Medium

Edited by Eric Kluitenberg. Text by Eric Kluitenberg, Siegfried Zielinsky, Bruce Sterling, Erkki Huhtamo, Edwin Carels, Zoe Beloff, Timothy Druckery, John Akomfrah.

Have you ever wondered if one day Windows 2028 might just know what you're thinking and type it? In this collection of essays, a selection of today's top media and sci-fi theorists weigh in. The Book of Imaginary Media explores the persistent idea that technology may one day succeed where no human has, not only in space or in nature, but also in interpersonal communication. Building on insights from media archeology, Siegfried Zielinski, Bruce Sterling, Erkki Huhtamo and Timothy Druckrey spin a web of associations between the fantasy machines of Athanasius Kircher, the mania of stereoscopy and "dead" media. Edwin Carels and Zoe Beloff descend into the cinematographic caverns of spiritualism and the iconography of death, and renowned cartoonists including Ben Katchor depict their own visionary media fantasies. On the enclosd DVD, artist Peter Blegvad provides hilarious commentary in a son et lumière version of his On Imaginary Media.
