Presentation Title:

  • The Cinematographer’s Eye, the Academic’s Mind and the Artist’s Intuition

Presenter(s):



Abstract:

  • As a professional Cinematographer, I’ve looked at the world through the frame, sometimes spending 24 hours on set, searching out the meaning of the dark surround and its luminous content. As an artist, I’ve discovered that the idea of a frame must include intuitive boundlessness to transcend its limitations; as an academic I’ve found that boundlessness must be limited through critical reflection, to bring back news from the ‘frontier’ for you, my colleagues. In this talk about my research work, with examples of high-resolution imaging and its apparatus, I shall discuss the opposing and complimentary pressures arising from ‘Practice as Research’.
