Sample text

Trying to recall that moment without reference to the video is impossible, and without the video, I would no doubt be unable to describe the details outlined here. What I do recall quite palpably is the sound of the event, which is perhaps the most striking detail about the video: the erratic beeping of the 32 . BORDER DISORDER RFID sensors, the barking dogs, the border guard yelling, the cheering crowd, the sound of the camera beating against the side of my head. This ill-­advised border adventure, which I now view as a relatively immature bit of risk-­taking behavior, eventually became a video installation called Border Disorder.

The scene underscores the real-­time and immediate nature of telephony, which, as Sherry Turkle (2011) suggests, is increasingly viewed as an inconvenience, a sort of physical captivity to both a device and an interlocutor (15). E-­mail and text messaging (to a lesser degree) alleviate us from this captivity by making possible a communications lag. More to the point, from an existential perspective, this scene marks Lester’s first authentic action toward escaping his depression, as perverse as T e l epho n e , P a g e r , T w o - ­Way Spea k e r .

A mysterious video kills whoever views it, unless that viewer can solve its mystery. Kairo, 2001, Japan, Dir. Kiyoshi Kurosawa. Japanese teens investigate a series of suicides linked to an Internet webcam that promises visitors the chance to interact with the dead. Pon, 2002, South Korea, Dir. Ahn Byeong-­ki. A young woman buys a new cell phone, only to discover that those who had the same phone number before her died suddenly under unusual circumstances. It should come as no surprise that these technoparanoiac films, seemingly inspired by apocalyptic manga, come out of Eastern Asia at the turn of the millennium.
