Abstract:

  • This paper maps two divergent trajectories within a narrowly defined sphere of short-form, time-based, digital media—specifically music videos, design-oriented short films and motion graphics—of the past ten years. I am particularly interested in considering this work’s potential for understanding emergent relations to the perception and construction of space, time and bodies; the status of narrative; relations between technology and material culture; and shifting conceptions of the roles played by producers and consumers.
