Art is at its most significant is a Distant Early Warning System that can always be relied on to tell the old culture what is beginning to happen to it.

Picnic in Space

Dir: Bruce Bacon 1967 28mins

Picnic in Space is a rare jewel of a film in which McLuhan banters with his long time cohort Harley Parker. The film sees McLuhan expounding on ‘space’ and its properties, while lying in a field somewhere in Canada. Amusing, classic and a period piece of McLuhan ephemera.
