Blog#5: Remediation


Remediation: Understanding New Media by Jay David Bolter and Richard Grusin is an impressive book. This book is divided to three sections: theory, media, and self. The first three chapters introduce the concept of remediation and the theory behind it. There are two main ideas: immediacy and hypermediacy. To me, the concept of immediacy is derived from McLuhan's article, The medium is The Message. This concept tries to deminish the border of content and media. The content is the media in another form. The authors use virtual reality (VR) as an example.
