"The talkie, with the Depression, cast the world back into the blind hole. Each new film reproduces the effect of Hallelujah, threatens us with depression, with panic and can at best show us nothing more than those who escape from it, the last to have reached climax just before the deluge. The talkie dumped us back into the most sinister part of the Judeo-Christian con-game. It is the end of a fraternity." - Jean-Jacques Abrahams, Fuck The Talkies

"You realize that to experience the projected figures on the movie theater screen as life-size involves the reduction of your own body to the size of a doll, while with television, conversely, you must mentally blow yourself up to the size of a giant to account for the minuscule scale of the figures on the small screen" - Mike Kelley

"If, for the first machine age, the preferred metaphor for the house was industrial, a “machine for living in”, the second machine age would perhaps privilege the medical: the house as at once prosthesis and prophylactic. In the Corbusian ‘home of man’ technology took the form of more or less benign ‘object-types’ and perfectly controlled environments… The line between nature and machine, between organic and inorganic, seemed crystal clear… Now, the boundaries between organic and inorganic, blurred by cybernetic and bio-technologies, seem less sharp; the body, itself invaded and reshaped by technology, invades and permeates the space outside, even as this space takes on dimensions that themselves confuse the inner and the outer…" - Anthony Vidler
