Sandy Smith - Firewall, 2005

The Firewall was a 10ft high wall, entirely made from computer equipment, that divided the gallery space in two. It uses around 90 computers and 26 monitors, and uses music from Daft Punk’s “Homework” album. As all the computers face the same direction, it creates 2 distinctly different spaces, which the viewer must move under an arch of monitors to walk from one side to another. The monitors display standard Windows/Apple desktops, but with different flat colour backgrounds. These monitors light the front space with a strange fragmented light, while the rear space is lit by a small sodium lamp, positioned facing the corner to dull the light.

He’s all over the internet and TV at the moment. And might just become Pope!But you’re not a proper meme until you’ve been LEGO-ized. So this makes it official.

It is all About the Medium

       McLuhan, M. (2003). The medium and the message. BRITISH JOURNAL OF HEALTH CARE MANAGEMENT9(10), 324-325.

       McLuhan’s essay focuses on what the title suggests, “The medium is the message.” Marshall is arguing that the medium of the ”extensions of humans,”(McLuhan, 2003) such as technology, is the most important part of any invention. For example, he begins with the medium of electricity and how it will always be the “content”(McLuhan, 2003) of endless inventions it brings to society. Marshall continues with the discovery of typography and the inventions that past civilizations have created to change history. The essay is a little difficult to read but manageable, McLuhan makes a good argument about medium and gives more than enough examples to support his argument. There were some parts of the essay that are confusing because some sentences seem to contradict each other. I am not saying Marshall contradicts himself but the essay has parts where a word is repeated several times and it confuses the reader. Although, when a statement such as “The medium is the message”(McLuhan, 2003) is repeated once or twice in a paragraph it makes sense and helps the reader remind themselves the point of the essay. Overall, the essay is understandable and makes interesting points about technology and and how they influence history. In my opinion, the essay began strong and quick but I lost interest about a third of the way.
