Abstract:The central focus is to look at how the migration of the moving image from the cinema to the gallery has changed its nature, in particular with a view to defining how the moving image effects and represents space and place. The screen is seen as a key element in this change and one that reveals the image as an absence as well as a presence. Using Bernard Stiegler's theory of technics, and the relationship between the organic and the inorganic, I argue for a revealing of the technology of reproduction to add a sculptural dimension to moving image work in the gallery. I explore these issues by referring to my video work and to the work of other film-maker/artists (Jane and Louise Wilson, Patrick Keiller and Graham Ellard and Stephen Johnstone), who have engaged with the moving image and the screen as a material form.
