My curator’s comment is embedded as the audio track of the remix video that serves as my post for today’s In Media Res. The video compresses the opening 18 minutes of video track from the BBC Documentary, The Ascent of Man hosted by 1970’s public intellectual Jacob Bronowski. With my affectless curator’s note, I hope to spur thought about a point of interplay that exists between new media theory and documentary studies.
A note of thanks is in order to Damaris Nielsen and Ed Tywoniak for assistance in recording the audio track. Please do listen.
