A Box Full of Angels (2008)

Centering on a fictional dialogue between Walter Benjamin and Marshall McLuhan in the afterlife, this Scholar-to-Scholar examines how their faiths influenced their intellectual development and media theory. In addition to focusing on posthumous communication, the medium, and spirituality—specifically Judaic and Catholic mysticism—the author also uses Benjamin and McLuhan to explore the communicative role of angels. As a multimedia presentation its form further extends the mediological exploration of angels to encompass angels as software.
