The filmed gesture: temporality, memory
November 16-17, 2015
2, rue Vivienne
Metro: Bourse (line 3)
Starting from the issue of the filmed gesture, this symposium will develop theoretical thinking about cinema as an art of time, taking into account recent hybridations and transformations that affected the cinema medium.
Giving priority to a dialogue between sciences, arts and techniques with the issues of temporality, memory and perception, our thinking will take note of an anthropological turning point in cinema and media studies, while questioning the body/machine relation. We will attempt to go back to the issue of the gesture when it is part of a audiovisual apparatus: from Muybridge to motion capture, we will wonder how the recording device brings a particularity, an other dimension, to the gesture, or how it programs it or invents it.
