  • Abstract

    Keywords: film, architecture, montage, mapping city

    In a city spatial and temporal fragments can be conceptually examined, expanded, and physically mapped through moving image manifestations of memories, sensory affects and situations, as spatial storytelling. How can sensory spaces in film be recognised and then further visualised? Creative montage techniques using film and video can work as multisensory portals to map lived experience. This paper proposes Eisenstein’s dialectic montage theory as the basis for experimenting with ‘conflict’ as a creative sensory dimension. Haptic qualities of film are explored as technical and experimental cognitive methods of mapping filmic memory. In ‘creative geography’ montage for instance, the aim is to create a narrative from juxtaposing multisensory spaces of film and identifying a flexible spatial cognition in film, a soft database cinema, termed Cinesensory.
