Description:
Did you know that Joyce evokes television a number of times in his "Wake in progress"? The flapping of wings of the Direct began to touch the world long before Television emerged in its present form. The effects of television, at least in the world of the arts, reveal what the theorists of chaos nicely call the butterfly effect. A simple discrepancy, a "small difference" at first is amplified over the course of time. A cataclysm emerges during a sequence, the initial point of which is a lowly event. From this point of view, television is a catastrophe, as well are the effects it produces. It is not located at the final point in the chain, but in the middle: it participates in and from the amplification onwards. (J-P.F.)
