The early modern concept of communicatioâi.e. âaction from a distanceâ such as Lockeâs association by deus ex machina and Newtonâs general attractionâreturned in the late 19th century; getting aroused not only by science but also technologies for example âspiritâ photography and Roentgenâs discovery. Edison attempted to penetrate the skull and Jordan to capture thoughts on a âpsychic retina;â both in vain. These are more than hoaxes since; without peopleâs fascination over extrasensory perception; Jordan e.g. could not have rhetorically validated his investigation merely by adopting radiological credibility; how do we explain this wishful expectation? Huhtamo et al.âs media archaeology undertakes âfirst; the study of the cyclically recurring elements and motives underlying and guiding the development of media culture; second; the âexcavationâ of the ways in which these discursive traditions and formulations have been âimprintedâ on specific media machines and systems in different historical contexts; contributing to their identity in terms of socially and ideologically specific webs of signification.â Hence depicting medical or everyday media as ones for any unknown world (or mediums) remains consistent in many Japanese horror filmsâCure (phonographic record); Ring (video tape); Pulse (internet); Dark Water (instant picture); One Missed Call (mobile phone).
