The Gap: Synaptic Sign of Modernity
The gap is a fundamental paradigm of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries in art, literature, science, psychology and criticism. It focuses on the space between things – between fragments in a collage, between atoms or quanta in matter and light, between fragments of a dream and pixels in a digital image, between what we know and don’t know, and between neurons in the brain.
The video about is a talk and visual presentation presented on February 22, 2013 at the 40th Louisville Conference on Literature and Culture since 1900.
In this talk, Seligson attempts to demonstrate deep and coherent relationships between Henry James' "The Wings of the Dove," the Hebrew Bible, "Hamlet" and Sigmund Freud's "Dora." In the process, she suggest fundamental analogies among writing, weaving and the communication of neurons in the brain.
This talk was delivered on July 9th, 2008 at Jamesian Strands, the Fourth International Henry James Conference held in Newport, Rhode Island.
