Betsy_Ch6_Cayley_Q

"I'm trying, as it were, to turn our attention from lines of verse to the letters of literal art and to place the latter in a significant contructive relationship with the pixels of digital graphic art." (213-214)

Cayley is trying to create a meaningful relationship between letters and pixels. --- I think.

"My argument is that the material manipulation of pixels derives, culturally, from an underlying gasp of the manipulation of letters." (214)

Is he trying to say people have been holding their breath to finally be able to manpulate letters??

reading it slowy couple of times :) i think Cayley wanted to say is.. manipulation of letters results traditionally in pixels being manipulated.. i dont know whats that gasp for though eheheh

and for the first idea.. i think he is trying to create a comparison --- what a line is in a verse to what a pixel is in a letter in an art..both form the fundamentals of the given art.
