_____________________[PRO] narrative never been linear :: new screen media
"there is no need to dwell on silly notions such as the digital media’s alleged development of some form of non-linear narrative; narrative constantly loops back and branches out, condenses and proliferates uncontrollably, which is why 'meaning' of a story can never be fixed once and for all. Narrative never been linear, so to proclaim the discovery of non-linear narrative is absurd."
"in the same vein, interactivity has always been a feature of any representational media, from religious rituals to painting, novels and cinema."
ну, что добавить? sic, да и только..
а вообще - хорошее, звонкое предисловие (an age of narrative chaos, martin rieser & andrea zapp) к книжке new screen media: cinema/art/narrative... книжка еще предстоит, но начало многообещающе.
