The Lisska Center for Scholarly Engagement and Arts@Denison present a virtual Lunch & Learn with Denison Cinema Associate Professor Jonathan Walley, discussing his book “Cinema Expanded: Avant-Garde Film in the Age of Intermedia.”
Drawing on material from Walley’s newly-published book, “Cinema Expanded: Avant-Garde Film in the Age of Intermedia,” this talk focuses on the analogy between filmmaking and sewing (e.g., a narrative film as “weaving a tale”), taken literally by a group of experimental filmmakers who create woven objects out of celluloid film strips. These “film quilts” raise some fascinating questions: are these artists making films or quilting? What does it mean to display a “film” as an object? What do such “border crossings” between two different art forms mean, and how do they shape the work of practicing artists?
