‘…the modest request of two absent lovers

“Ye Gods! Annihilate but space and time, And make two lovers happy.”’

Alexander Pope, The Art of Sinking in Poetry (1727).

“Annihilating time and space is what most new technologies aspire to do: technology regards the very terms of our bodily existence as burdensome”

                              Rebecca Solnit, River of Shadows – Edweard Muybridge and the technological wild west (2003).
