Carol Wilder: Being Analog

"...As a level of description, it [analog] is closer than digital coding to the physical world, closer to corporeality, more kinesthetic, tactile, more-dare I say- 'real'.

From: Carol Wilder, Being Analog in 'The Postmodern Presence: Readings in Postmodernism in American Culture and Society' (2008)
