Publisher's Synopsis

As we spend more time staring at TVs and computers - 'windows' full of moving images, texts, and icons - how the world is framed has become as important as what is in the frame. This book examines the window as metaphor, as architectural component, and as an opening to the dematerialised reality seen on the screen.
