Used-Very Good. In Media Ecologies, Matthew Fuller asks what happens when media systemsinteract. Complex objects such as media systems--understood here as processes, orelements in a composition as much as 'things'--have become informational as muchas physical, but without losing any of their fundamental materiality. Fuller looksat this multiplicitous materiality--how it can be sensed, made use of, and how itmakes other possibilities tangible. He investigates the ways the different qualitiesin media systems can be said to mix and interrelate, and, as he writes, 'to producepatterns, dangers, and potentials. 'Fuller draws on texts by Felix Guattari andGilles Deleuze as well as writings by Friedrich Nietzsche, Marshall McLuhan, DonnaHaraway, Friedrich Kittler, and others, to define and extend the idea of 'mediaecology. ' Arguing that the only way to find out about what happens when mediasystems interact is to carry out such interactions, Fuller traces a series of mediaecologies--'taking every path in a labyrinth simultaneously, ' as he describes onechapter. He looks at contemporary London-based pirate radio and its interweaving ofhigh-and low-tech media systems; the 'medial will to power' illustrated by 'thecamera that ate itself'; how, as seen in a range of compelling interpretations ofnew media works, the capacities and behaviors of media objects are affected whenthey are in 'abnormal' relationships with other objects; and each step in a sequenceof Web pages, Cctv--world wide watch, that encourages viewers to report crimesseen via webcams. Contributing to debates around standardization, cultural evolution, cybernetic culture, and surveillance, and inventing a politically challengingaesthetic that links them, Media Ecologies, with its various narrative speeds, scales, frames of references, and voices, does not offer the academicallytraditional unifying framework; rather, Fuller says, it proposes to capture 'anexplosion of activity and ideas to which it hopes to add an echo. ' A 'dirty materialist' ride through the media cultures of pirate radio, photography, the Internet, media art, cultural evolution, and surveillance.
