Abstract

While many desire the latest new technology, what are the environmental and human costs of the widespread consumption of portable media devices? In Finite Media: Environmental Implications of Digital Technologies,Sean Cubitt examines the ecological toll of the manufacture, use and disposal of phones, computers and other items, and advocates ‘an eco-political media aesthetics’ in response. This insightful book is replete with illuminating examples and case studies, with subtle arguments that will likely prove prescient in years to come, writes Niall Flynn.
