Abstract

Whether we use the word “screen” to refer to smart cinema or stupid telephony, we need to engage it through twin theoretical prisms. On the one hand, it is a component of sovereignty that relates to territory, language, history, and education. On the other hand, it is a cluster of culture industries, subject to rent-seeking practices, exclusionary representational protocols, and environmental destructiveness. We should examine screen life as it is lived and in ways that engage and criticize futurology, creative-industries discourse, and waste.
