Time and chaos: the “imagination of possibilities” and the media

Gustavo Castro, Florence Dravet

Resumo


This article proposes a reflection about the notion of time and its relation to the media based on the complex thinking paradigm and the transdisciplinary perspective. Departing from reflections about literary and cinematographic narratives, our objective is to examine how the notion of time mediates the concept of comprehension of space/time as well as of the aesthetic perception of the world between order and chaos. We relied on the dialogue between science and narrative and on modern physics for concepts of time, order and chaos. Our conclusions point to three ideas: 1) the constant remembrance of catastrophe is an obsessive intimate theme which presents itself through an artistic and mediatic narrative; 2) the expression of catastrophic obsession partially satisfies the current humanity’s affection for horror and 3) the imaginary of catastrophe traverses time and space, being transdisciplinary.
