Uncanny Associations

From the U of Chicago Media Glossary
Thus, a medium becomes uncanny not when it “comes  
to life,” but when it becomes apparent that it was alive
all along. All media are potentially uncanny and, as
Mitchell reflects, we may some day be forced to
consider the possibility that behind it all there exists 
only “‘ourselves,’ and our obscure objects of desire.”
