Writing Machines
By N. Katherine Hayles, Anne Burdick
English | 2002 | 224 Pages | ISBN: 0262582155 | PDF | 7 MB

Tracing a journey from the 1950s through the 1990s, N. Katherine Hayles uses the autobiographical persona of Kaye to explore how literature has transformed itself from inscriptions rendered as the flat durable marks of print to the dynamic images of CRT screens, from verbal texts to the diverse sensory modalities of multimedia works, from books to technotexts. 
Weaving together Kayes pseudo-autobiographical narrative with a theorization of contemporary literature in media-specific terms, Hayles examines the ways in which literary texts in every genre and period mutate as they are reconceived and rewritten for electronic formats. As electronic documents become more pervasive, print appears not as the sea in which we swim, transparent because we are so accustomed to its conventions, but rather as a medium with its own assumptions, specificities, and inscription practices. Hayles explores works that focus on the very inscription technologies that produce them, examining three writing machines in depth: Talan Memmotts groundbreaking electronic work Lexia to Perplexia, Mark Z. Danielewskis cult postprint novel House of Leaves, and Tom Phillipss artists book A Humument. Hayles concludes by speculating on how technotexts affect the development of contemporary subjectivity.is the second volume in the Mediawork Pamphlets series.
