Other technical advances, including video projection and DVD, have made practical the hybrid form of ‘video installation art’. This can involve the use of multiple screens or the combination of video with objects and environment....

... lontar , and is usually inscribed with a pen or *writing brush and ink. In South Sulawesi the common word for MS is lontaraq , clearly a borrowing from Javanese/Malay lontar . A few extant palm-leaf MSS from this region have a singular shape in that they look like audio or video cassettes: their contents are written on rolled-up palm leaves, and by unwinding the roll the text ‘unfolds’ before the reader’s eyes between the two reels, not unlike a *scroll . However, such palm-leaf examples are rare; all other MSS from South Sulawesi, written by the Bugis,...

...hypertext can do much that the book cannot. Electronic memory allows for the presentation of multiple particular versions of the text of any particular work. Hyperlinks enable flexible connections among those texts, and among an essentially unlimited range of contexts, in video, audio, and textual formats.

There are parallels and synergies here with postmodern tendencies in recent contemporary critical theory. Major...

As elsewhere, the spread of broadcast and electronic media, especially television, video, and the Internet ( see world wide web ), has had some adverse impact on the market for printed literature, but this has been largely offset by the rise in rates of literacy. Similar trends are to be found in most other Muslim countries, but there has been a publishing explosion...
