Commentary: Memory, Mediascapes, and Temporal Circulation in Urban Space; or How Landscapes Were Never as Linear as We Thought They Weren’t

Bryce Peake

Abstract:

This commentary critically reframes the concept of circulation in terms of time, defining the dislocation of space that occurs with media—defined as technology taken to be a social phenomenon—as an occurrence that creates, and is a result of, simultaneous streams of temporal flow. Counter to narratives that claim for technology and media’s radical altering of subjectivity, I suggest that this notion of temporality was already present in cultural understandings of memory and monuments in the landscape.
