Wireless Culture

If senses are viewed as the interface between living things and the outside world, from the perspective of the outside world, hearing is a network with gates providing open access. We cannot shut down the sound that we do not want to hear. In comparison, for vision, a living being can reject the connection, making vision a network with gates providing restricted access, and the direction of connections can be determined by the will of the living being. Kazunari Suzuki says in "Telephone" (Yousennsha 1987, in Japanese), that in telephone space “the physical body which is boundlessly retreating and the voice which is boundlessly approaching" create a strange dereism, and this creates evenness and equality within the telephone space. It is also said that the telephone space is a "lost space", where "destination", "external component", "time" and "physical body" are lost.
