Abstract

In a society that breathlessly awaits 'the new' in every medium, what happens to last year's new? Ample critical energy has gone into the study of new media, genres, and communities. But what becomes of discarded media? In what manner do the products of technological change reappear as environmental problems, as 'the new' in another part of the world, as collectibles, as memories, and as art?
