Whilst I say among song and portray, I suggest that voiced, articulated language and tune and cinema are an paintings of time, and that after we go from the pen and pencil to the keyboard for reading/writing, passing in terms of the word-processor keyboard, which had already started this mutation, we pass from a method that spatialises inscription – as is often the case in portray, and the 1st writing is a spread After Six Months of Work... (1984) of portray – towards a method that temporalises inscription. which means the signifier during this moment modality is organised in a series all of whose components should not actualisable right now – within the blink of a watch, as we are saying – as is the case for a picture, yet simply successively – or, as linguists say, diachronically. The display pages themselves scroll, and whilst a author works on a note processor – whatever that we're additionally together with during this exhibition – the key, specifically if he's used to operating with a pen, is this author loses his manuscript web page, he loses the entire preparatory paintings the place additions are inscribed; the emendations, erasures, and blunders that are there jointly within the preparatory textual content all disappear and provides solution to a textual content that itself can also be preparatory, yet that's power – I suggest that it's not there at hand, you can’t positioned the entire edited pages subsequent to one another to get a view of the full; you should increase one after the other this or that prior web page which has been memorised on your desktop. rather than a preparatory textual content it's a capability textual content, a textual content that may be a destiny textual content since it is within the means of fabrication, yet one that, nonetheless, is extra earlier than the manuscript is, since you can in simple terms recollect it web page by way of web page, to revise and proper it. you can't have it the following, now, en bloc; it truly is by no means there, any longer than a movie is ever there as a complete. This additionally implies that, on the keyboard and ahead of the display, we now have an event of time instead of of area. Bizarrely, this predominance of time indicates a type of preeminence of move over leisure. house because the web site of inscription – exceptionally the gap of portray or of hieroglyphics, hierographics in most cases – is associated with leisure, time is associated with move. The paradoxes of time are paradoxes of flow, and in a hegemony of analyzing, like that which i've got simply defined very clumsily, we'd say that house is itself yet a selected case of time, that's to assert that relaxation – the simultaneous greedy of a visible entire by way of the attention (a relative relaxation, due to the fact that we know that the attention is actually very energetic and is itself continually in move, however the stream isn't within the item, the circulate is within the eye) – this leisure itself is a selected case of move. you could cease your screen-page to check in it in a extra reliable, slower approach, for instance, to alter speeds as one does with the procession of frames on the cinema; yet regardless, the body itself can in simple terms be taken as an severe case of non-movement, the single common case being circulate (by flow, I repeat, I comprehend the circulate of the thing, by means of advantage of an identical precept as in tune, the place it is going with out announcing that it's the stream of vibrations that represent the thing to be understood).
