Overview Effect Video 25 Years on
I only just stumbled across this: A video reflecting on the ‘Overview Effect’ concept outlined by Frank While in 1987.
Full website for the project here.
There is a lot that I like about this concept, but I also think there are some interesting things to be said about it from a critical (and/or Critical Theory) perspective. If anyone is interested in reviewing it for the journal Space Policy, please give me a shout! I would love for someone to write say 1-2,000 words giving an overview (no pun intended) of the original text, then reflecting on this film and the themes, some 25 years on, incorporating some level of critique of the ‘Overview’ concept.
