MEDIA 741

Time and the Moving Image


Description

Explores how moving images mediate our experience of time, from the actualités of early cinema to looping GIFs and digital FX. How has time been captured, represented and reimagined through different media formats?

Students will analyse the treatment of time in documentary and narrative cinema, experimental film, music videos, video games and new media with reference to key concepts in philosophy and media theory. Topics covered include: photography and cinema, digital and analogue time, "real time", manipulated time, "haunted" media, media as time travel, "accelerationism", slowness and duration.
