Intertextuality

  • Example Simpsons references to Clockwork Orange.

Simulacrum
  • Used to describe a representation of another
    thing, such as a statue, a painting, or an image
    without the substance or qualities of the
    original.
  • Example Venice, Las Vegas Venice, Italy.

Hyperreality
  • Describes a hypothetical inability of
    consciousness to distinguish reality from
    fantasy.

    discordance that goes beyond the simple words or
    actions.
