Book: Remediation

The desire for sexual as well as visual immediacy has led more than one cosmetic surgeon to marry a woman he has reconstructed or to reconstruct the woman he marries. (In Hitchcock's Vertigo, the paradigmatic Hollywood film about the desire for immediacy, Judy's body is remediated by Scottie as he dictates her clothes and even hair style and color in order to make her over into Madeleine. Cf. de Lauretis 1984, 153-155.) G' p.150
