Model as a gesture (pointing away)
as the exhibition of mediality.
Just read Agamben’s Notes on gesture, also his paper on Aby Warburg.
also Jill Bennets -the gesture of intermediality. link to follow
These papers seem to provide a way of thinking about the intermedial gesture and media in general.
Intermedia, gestures, spectrality, terrain vague
Gesture and performativity in relation to intermedia – the gesture of photography (Flusser)
Terrain vague – Stalker. an inbetween zone. a kind of ghost story.
Blend modes and spectrality (spirit photography)
Blending in The Sandman -Stan Douglas
Blending in Vera Lutter’s photographs – due to long exposure
Tracing gestures – Pierre Bismuth tracing gestures from film and displaying them over a photograph – another form of blending.
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
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.
