Books: Art of Projection (Stan Douglas & Christopher Eamons)

Art of Projection

[amazonify]3775723706[/amazonify] Ten essays, written by leading art historians and critics, including Stan Douglas, Mieke Bal and Beatriz Colomina, address precedents for the projection of images in space, including nineteenth-century magic lantern shows and the novel spatial/temporal representations pioneered by Surrealists and experimental filmmakers during the early and mid-twentieth century. Central to the book’s thesis are various alternatives–which were investigated by adherents of Expanded Cinema in the 70s and resurrected by video artists in the 90s–to the conventional portrayals of space and time promoted by the mainstream culture industry. Art of Projection serves as a timely reconsideration of media art’s history.
