Theorists have said that there exists a perception of loss in the integrity of literature due to changes in the material form of the book. In 1875, Nordau said that art and poetry would become pure ativisms because literature had been drawing from emotional stimuli rather than the product of intellectual pursuit. Kernan argues that it is the invasion of technology that compromises people’s ability to read. Kurzweil says that the book will become obsolete as a natural consequence of 200 years of overlapping technological development. The Passing is the culmination of practice-based design research into the metaphoric representation of the death of the book.
