Date: Thu, 3 Apr 1997 14:53:29 -0500 From: Wayne Glowka Subject: Comput-TV Would anyone who has seen WAX care to hazard a guess at what "compu-TV" might actually mean in the following quotation? Does it refer to the kinds of visual effects that make Toy Story a daily hit at my house? 1995 Sep/Oct Bloomsbury Review 14/1 Taking many forms, the Avant-Pop surfaces in everything from William Gibson's cyberpunk novel Neuromancer (Ace, 1984), which merges unusual techniques (surreal images, info-dense sentences, the introduction of astounding vocabularies) with conventional genre science fiction conceits, to David Blair's cult film WAX, or The Discovery of Television Among the Bees (1991), a disruptive seriocomic narrative short with a compu-TV vision about cross-sexual reincarnation and the Gulf War told by Mesopotamian bees (which turn out to be the souls of the dead).
