Questions/comments about TOC

Since we don’t have a participant posting this week, I thought I would post a few questions and comments about TOC.

1. The work combines a rich variety of modalities, including text, background graphics, sound, video, and animation.  What representations of time are present in the work, and how do these representations interact with the modalities used for representation?   (Here you might focus on a particular section to think how they work together).

2.  Why is a heart necessary for the difference engine, and why does the difference machine explode?

3. What would it mean to trap time, and in what sense are media involved in this operation?  (Think of media as spatializations to manipulate the temporal axis.)

4.  In what senses are human bodies and machines put into conjunction with one another?  What are the significances of these juxtapositions?
