Notes from train to Manchester 3

Automata themes

Kleist and automata – the dancer and naturalness.
The gesture and the dancer
Spectres and blending – photography enables this appearance.

Spectres and automata- the digital hybridity (half living, half dead). Absence and presence.

Motion capture, the trace and the animation of gesture. Reanimating, bringing back to life and

living with.

Spectral framework- animation as between being and absence. Temporal hybridity- time is out of joint.

Spinning heads (Derrida) – animation.
Spectrality and automata – a digital version of 19c photography?

Rhetoric of the image (phantasmagoria). Science versus superstition. Or Neoliberalism versus the spectres of Marx. What is the rhetoric in relation to Spectrality?

Combinatorics and creativity- conceptual blending. Combinatorics and digital hybridity. Re- animating.

Moving from 2D to 3D. 3D Photogrammetry and the cast.
