What People are Saying About This
"Homay King is an astute observer of art, her analyses masterful and original. The book's project of redeploying the philosophical concept of the virtual toward a renewed understanding of time-based art is one of great importance for art theory and media studies, and is brought to fruition in these pages with interpretive skill and conceptual precision."
"Homay King's Virtual Memory is a fascinating and beautifully written book that explores the complex imbrication of the analog with the digital, both technologically and conceptually, and makes the case that there is no experience of technology or art that can avoid engagement with the reality of lived experience. Considering the breadth of its examples and topics, Virtual Memory should find readers not only in film and media studies, but in art history and criticism, and science and technology studies as well. An outstanding book."
