Scene 9, Part 2

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.
