media cannibalise or destroy old media?
|Super 8 transformed: Obsessive Becoming (1995) by Daniel Reeves, to be shown at Film Begets Digital|
Centre for British Film and Television presents a day of screening and
discussion focused on issues raised by the passage now under way from
analogue to digital culture in audiovisual media. From presenting pre-cinema
toys and artefacts in digital form - as Werner Nekes, the collector behind
the Hayward's record-breaking 'Eye Lies and Illusions' show has done -
to speculation about a change in theoretical pardadigm of spectatorship,
as proposed by Laura Mulvey, this day will offer a unique chance to engage
with the challenges we are living through - in terms of practice and theory.
Presentations by Patrick Keiller, Malcolm Le Grice, Laura
Mulvey, Ian Christie, and Steven Ball.
