blog # 2

I apologize for being 'that person' and posting so late! In reading Deluze's article on societies of control, I was particularly struck by the concept of the 'interior.' To think of schools, prison, hospitals, even family, as entities of enclosure seems to resonate with the idea discussed in class that control requires resistance. These social institutions are constantly passing reform after reform, until they are ultimately finished, as Deluze puts it.

Perhaps when these moments are 'finished' is the moment in which a weird media event takes place, 'crystallizing relations,' as professor put it. This raises the question as to whether or not this is a bad thing for society? To what extent is a weird media event an opportunity for others? Also, what is the risk in Deluze's view of 'enclosure'?
