– TOC: a New Media Novel (2009), Steve Tomasula –
TOC: a New Media Novel blends written and spoken word with still and moving images, sounds, music, video clips, animations, graphics; the catalogue of various media could be made long. Thematically, it is a work concerned with time: with the representation, conceptualization, and fictionalization of temporal registers of various kinds. Its visual, verbal, and auditory registers are full of temporal metaphors and representations that intersect, blend, mirror, confuse, support, and reject each other.
