Between Film, Video, and the Digital : Hybrid Moving Images in the Post-Media Age (Hardcover) (Jihoon
About this item
Encompassing experimental film and video, essay film, gallery-based installation art, and digital art, Jihoon Kim explores various theoretical issues shaped by the encounters and negotiations between the different media that engage in the production of the impure moving images, such as duration, stillness and movement, afterlives of the celluloid cinema, apparatus, archive, memory, and materiality.
Grounding its study in the collaborative, interdisciplinary framework of film studies, media studies, and contemporary art criticism,Between Film, Video, and the Digital offers a fresh insight on the crucial roles of media hybridity in the creative processes of giving birth to the emerging forms of the moving image. Incorporating in-depth readings of recent works by more than forty artists and filmmakers, including Jean-Luc Godard, Harun Farocki, Bill Viola, Sam Taylor-Wood, David Claerbout, Fiona Tan, James Benning, Sharon Lockhart, Ken Jacobs, Phil Solomon, R. Bruce Elder, Christophe Girardet and Matthias Müller, Takeshi Murata, Douglas Gordon, Stan Douglas, Candace Breitz, among others, the book is the essential scholarly monograph for understanding how and where the art and culture of the moving image came from and where they are going.
