Sampling Scenes and Slowing Media

For centuries, speed and efficiency have guided Western notions of progress and paved the postindustrial path toward modernity. Beginning in earnest in the 1980s, slow movements around food, reading, painting, media, and urban life have gained significant international attention. This chapter examines microscenes of slowness that deliberately slow the turnover of objects, ideas, and technologies, and “chop and screw” audiovisual cultural artifacts. Through an analysis of works of slowness and the scenes that produce them, the chapter correlates an overabundance of residual technologies and digital media with static and reiterative impulses in society more broadly.

Keywords:   slow, speed, cultural scenes, modernity, time, stasis, retromania, chopped and screwed, remix, residual media
