park, s. h.park, s. h.2017-11-24The fragmented and segmented way of thinking that existed before the invention of written language seems to have ironically been revived with the introduction of new media. The logical and structured stream of consciousness has disappeared and meaning changed to images floating adrift on the computer monitor. As if laughing at Saussure, who insisted on a defined pairing between the signifier and the signified, the segmented signifiers of today encounter new meanings and produce unaffixed signifieds.
In reading a book, the reader must follow the logical reasoning presented in the text for a prolonged period of time, and one’s consciousness is completely barred from cutting in. Readers accustomed to a linear logical way of thinking and the reader experience may feel themselves at loss in light of the deconstructed, fractured way of thinking brought on by the new media paradigm. However, for children born and raised in the digital generation, it is natural to approach thinking like assembling the pieces of a fragmented puzzle. We may consider that the difference in consciousness between the generations is a separation caused by media.
