“In television, images are projected at you. You are the screen. The images wrap around you. You are the vanishing point. This creates a sort of inwardness, a sort of reverse perspective.” – Marshall McLuhan.

“The TV image is nothing but a screen, not even that: a miniaturized terminal that, in fact, is immediately located in your head—you are the screen, and the TV watches you—it transistorizes all the neurons and passes through like a magnetic tape—a tape, not an image.” – Jean Baudrillard

“In her sophisticated eyes I was already becoming a kind of emotional cassette, taking my place with all those scenes of pain and violence that illuminated the margins of our lives – television newsreels of wars and student riots, natural disasters and police brutality which we vaguely watched on the colour TV set in our bedroom as we masturbated each other… Even my own pain as I lay in the hospital bed… seemed extensions of that real world of violence calmed and tamed within our television programmes and the pages of news magazines.” – J.G. Ballard

“The TV tube is like a flagging piece of nervous tissue—you need a bigger and bigger charge to get a kick out of it.” – J.G. Ballard
