Below are some sources that I’m looking at. Some texts are also cited in my thesis regarding critical design, media death, etc.
Sound Unbound: Sampling Digital Music and Culture edited by Paul D. Miller
The Death of Art by Bhesham R. Sharma
Homage to New York, the self destroying sculpture - an artwork by Jean Tinguely w/ MoMA (1960)
Will be looking towards Rob to find sources that will aid in the actually signification process.
