Promotional Information

'This book is filled with insights into how our experiences of time and space are bound up with cultural practice and creative expression, and how developments in communication technology make possible new such experiences. John Potts covers a formidable amount of ground in a very readable fashion. He is just as much at home discussing creation myths and classical literature as he is with more contemporary phenomena such as social media, sampling and video art.' - Graham Meikle, University of Westminster, UK 'The reader will learn from every page of this erudite, yet accessible, overview of the history, theory and transformations of our experience and concepts of time and space. It is particularly illuminating regarding contemporary arts, media and culture.' Mitchell Dean, Copenhagen Business School, Denmark

Reviews

"This is an interesting and thought-provoking book. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty; general readers." (E. Kincanon, Choice, Vol. 53 (11), July, 2016) "John Potts, boldly charts human perceptions of time and space through ancient civilisation, across indigenous cultures and religious practices, to myriad present day concepts of physical and virtual space. ... His versatile, comprehensive knowledge and clear exposition of the basics of media studies works well alongside this micro-encyclopaedia of artists and space time conceptions. ... it offers a vivid glimpse into the mind of an author with an immense general knowledge and a gift for making new connections." (Prudence Gibson, Performance Paradigm, Issue 12, 2016)
