So what I'm working on right now is a cut down of my paper for DAC in Melbourne. I went to the one at Brown two years ago, and it was quite fun.

The paper is about the political ontogenesis of vision in computer games. which means, in short, that the visual experiences in computer games reconfigures vision in a political way. As this is part of a series of paper on McLuhan's extension/amputation thesis found in Understanding Media that I hope will one day become my own book, I'm going to cut some of that argument out. However, the primary argument is generated from the work of Paul Virilio such as The Vision Machine, The Aesthetics of Disappearance, and Lost Dimension.
