Additions:
=====A Little Book of Probes=====
From “poetics on the warpath,”
===The brief===
Demonstrate what you have mastered concerning writing, the book, and the mind over the last five weeks by constructkmg a little book of probes that spurs and guides knowledge making on topics you select. Adapt McLuhan's method and use it to explore our recent work.
The printed book, we’re seeing argued, limits perception, shape the psyche, and or by encouraging exposition, the argument, the extension by language. The probe pushes against that by revealing it.
You’ve got a sense of how probes with images tend to work: They are not idiosyncratic or personal or arbitrary. They are not in the first person: they probe external understanding. They talk about We and Us. They provide the stuff of contemplation w/o stating a precise claim. You’ve seen how they can be assembled and sequenced. How they are worded with paradox, brevity, rhythm, as aphorism. A probe is not restricted to a single sentence. Some are two, three, four sentences. They invoke time, space, media, civilization, the human. They push us to think in terms of history, time, change, perception, the mind, the past, the immediate, the mediate, the future. We and us in environments of media and culture. Conditions, space, resonance, tribal drums (429). A call to action (430). Playful (431). Reading fosters the habit of asking questions (435).
For more probes, read The new science of communication. Percepts : Fragments. 451–543.
Use Heim and McLuhan as starting points.
Create a little book of probes using images and text together. Gather ideas from Heim and McLuhan. 8 - 10 probes, either as spreads or simgle page. Text can be culled from readings, with changes as you see fit. or your own written probes. Acknowledge borrowings.
You might handwrite, paste, print and paste. Use blocks. Use scanned, drawn, or borrowed images. The codex should be rugged enough for me to carry home safely.
Themes. Our overarching context is The Book. To delimit your thinking, mentally add “and the book” to the theme.
Some topics we have not touched on that you might
No meeting next Monday. instead, hand in your little book of probes physically by next Tuesday, by 2:00 pm. Drop box mext to office door at HS 314.
Deletions:
Read “poetics on the warpath,”
Last 5 weeks, with Heim and Probes we’ve been looking at the book and the mind.
The printed book, we’re seeing argued, has come to limit perception, shape the psyche, and or by encouraging exposition, the argument, the extension by language. The probe pushes against that by revealing it.
