  • Talent TV
    Benn, Boyle and Baudrillard, Cowell, Clegg and Culture
  • “Twitches”
  • Convergence
    “We’re really talking about a converged interactive media industry. There’s an increasing interplay between gaming, online, TV and films – it’s all coming together.”
    Jon Kingsbury, NESTA, 2010
  • Media 2.0
    Lots of DIFFERENT IDEAS on this. Very much a CONTESTED view.
  • Interaction, partly facilitated by technological convergence
    More ‘interactive’ – yes
    But also more democratic?
  • Baudrillard’shyper-real?
    neither dream nor reality but simulacrum – fetishised reality
  • Zizek
    Virtual reality = product deprived of its substance.
    “Just as decaffeinated coffee smells and tastes like real coffee without being real coffee, Virtual reality is experienced as reality without being so. What happens at the end of this process of virtualization, however, is that we begin to experience ‘real reality’ itself as a virtual entity”.
  • Interactive / Democratic?
  • Or Demotic?
    Turner - there is no clear connection between the exposure given to ‘everyday people’ by reality TV and any kind of progressive or emancipatory shifts.
    Thus the ‘demotic turn’ equates merely to the increase in exposure of / to the public with no necessary democratic outcomes.
    Rather, the rise of celebrity culture – and with it the clamour for us to seek the prize of commodifying ourselves as celebrities - has had the effect of charging the contemporary media with the power to ‘translate’ cultural identity.
