“I am looking for writings on Mimesis in regards new, digital, hypertext and hypermedial technologies and cultures.
I am following the redefinition of mimesis. From Plato’s disregard of oral culture, through his mimesis of Socrates’ dialogues in writing. Following Plato, Aristotle’s theory was always a written mimesis, thus the order and processes of representation and mimicry were fundamentally written.
In essence, I am interested in how the artifacts of oral culture differed in their mimesis to written culture, and thus, how our modern move from a written to a digital/hypertextual culture will similarly impact on mimetic embodiment.”
