Dread : The Dizziness Of Freedom




Constantly changing technology and growing communication networks give us ever more choices and options. However, every technological innovation has its counterpart: catastrophe looms. Dread is an essential, potentially productive element of our consciousness, and a defining characteristic of the present-day human condition. However dark and fatalistic its connotations, through its dialectical coupling of caution and transgression, paralysis and overdrive, it allows imagining the world differently, offering glimpses of the ineffable. This book is a peripheral exploration of dread wherein contributors reflect upon the concept’s potentialities from a contemporary viewpoint.
