Beckett's Breath

This chapter focuses on Beckett's media environments and his experimentation with technology in relation to the complex contemporary media culture. Beckett explored some cardinal aspects of technology and wrote texts that deployed media so as to create dramatic effects and simultaneously challenged the limitations of the artistic medium. Breath is intrinsically intermedial given that is operates in-between realities, in-between the boundaries of artistic media, the verbal and the visual, the audible and the scenic, in-between visibility and invisibility, absence and emptiness, embodiment and ambiguity of corporeal experience. Intermediality is examined as a combinatory structure of syntactical elements that come from more than one medium, but are combined into one and are thereby transformed into a new entity
