Dark Euphoria: The Neo-Gothic Narrative of Millennial Technoculture

Mitchell John Goodwin, University, My, Stephen Stockwell
2018
This exegetical document provides the theoretical context for a series of media art works that were produced between 2011 and 2012 in response as much as in parallel to this analysis.  ...  They not only form the reference base for such observations but also largely facilitate the convergent flow of the ideas they subsequently generate -as tools for research but also as 18 generators for  ...  This goes beyond a mere reshaping of the systems of control, this is not purely an act of observation and surveillance by an autonomous system, this is the system literally assuming control.  ...
