Scene 9, Part 2

November 22, 2013 § Leave a comment

Think you’re pretty clever coming up with the phrase: “The medium is the message, the lens is the microphone”.

That’s the stuff thesis titles are made of. Good job. Have a millefeuille. Sip some green tea. Take the rest of the day off.

Then you realise “lens” is already kind of a metaphor…an eye-based metaphor… you’re not even adhering to the same sensory framework.

Or maybe it’s not a metaphor. Maybe it’s an image. ?!… ?

You Google the word “lens”.

Yep, definitely a metaphor ..

But maybe if the medium is the MASSAGE, then having a lens be a microphone isn’t so bad? Sip some green tea. Take the rest of the day off.
