Product Overview

New in Paperback. Examines the tensions between the aims of military technology and modernist aesthetics in relation to perception. This book analyses the operation of mechanical and electronic technologies in connection with two seemingly disparate fields: state-of-the-art military equipment of the 20th and 21st centuries and the experimental art, music and writing of the late-19th and early-20th century. Reading the art and writing of Djuna Barnes, Joseph Conrad, Marcel Duchamp, James Joyce, Mina Loy, Stephane Mallarme, the Italian Futurists and H. G. Wells against Apache attack helicopters, Network-Centric Warfare, satellites, decoys, sirens and radios, this book addresses issues such as targeting, surveillance, visibility and the invisible, broadcast and media, the military body, diasporas, geopolitics and beauty.
