  4. 4. Figures of time : on the phenomenology of cinema and temporality

    Author : Malin Wahlberg; Michael Renov; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; film theory; phenomenology; aesthetic theory; temporality; duration; speed; photography; city film; documentary; experimental cinema; Film; Filmvetenskap; Cinema Studies; filmvetenskap;

    Abstract : Image and time represent a favored issue among theorists and practitioners in the history of cinema, where discussion is related to the ingenious machine, the new art, as well as the experience of film. Looking back on this debate, and considering recent accounts of 'time-images,' it is striking to note how the problem has always oscillated between issues of the medium specific and issues of film experience; that is, the ontology of cinema as a time-bound medium, the quality of rhythm, duration, and recorded views, and, not least, the sensory and affective impact of mediated sound-images.

  5. 5. On Textile Farming : Seeds as Material for Textile Design

    Author : Svenja Keune; Delia Dumitrescu; Högskolan i Borås; []

    Abstract : Presently, designing with living systems such as insects, fungi and bacteria has become an area of extended interest, proposing collaborative processes of designing and manufacturing - as a solution for symbiotic ways of living. On the scale of the interior, modern systems for interior gardening, combining both functional, e.g. READ MORE
