«Taking Screenshots»

× Prof. Dr. Jan-Henning Raff

× Janine Sack

The screenshot is a proof of a user. A witness on an act. A beholder of an intention. A presentation of a representation. A state of an image. An inactive state of the image. The image is the screen. However, however, however, the have-been-there in photos becomes a can-be-there in screenshots. A virtual liberty. But, do fingers abide, or guide?

Do flies know what we see in the screen?

Can the human hands, as an agent in a story, be more effective in communicating/signifying the rhetoric of the screen? A literal perspective on the human-computer interaction.
