Wandering Star: The Image of the Constellation in Benjamin, Giedion & McLuhan

The purpose of this presentation is to trace the metaphor of the constellation in the materialist modernism of Benjamin and Giedion to the more conservative modernism of McLuhan, and to view it as a kind of “travelling concept,” as Mieke Bal has described: an elastic idea or metaphor, offering “a site of debate, awareness and tentative exchange.”
