This revolution, which was really more of an intensification of earlier processes, was driven by, inter alia, the exploitation of electricity and the internal combustion engine, use of early plastics (celluloid, and later bakelite), the oneiric power of the cinematograph, the sound -- reproduction technology of the phonograph, and the communications technologies of the telephone and later the radio. In theoretical terms one could argue that there is no space, no "and" between modernism and these technological shifts: they are bound together in a common culture. But for practical purposes we can describe a set of relations between the two.||Type of material:||Book Chapter||Publisher:||Cambridge University Press||Keywords:||Modernism; Technology||Subject LCSH:||Arts and society||Other versions:||http://admin.cambridge.org/academic/subjects/literature/english-literature-1900-1945/cambridge-history-modernism?format=HB&isbn=9781107034693||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Is part of:||Sherry, V.
