The Medium is the Massage

The medium is the massage, in so far as, each medium has the ability to coax the participant into agreement with the particular medium’s assumption.

This website aims to exploit the interactivity of clip-culture. Large amounts of information can be conveyed with minimal energy. All information is interconnectable. Indeed this is how we construct our reality as our consciousness occurs 40 times a second. This why Brion Gyson and William Burroughs developed the cut-up technique.
