The notion of an expanded form of cinema has driven the development over the last decade of the iCinema Research Centre at the University of New South Wales. The expanded cinematic image, a term made famous by Gene Youngblood, rather than confined to one time and space, instead circulates over networks, distributed by users who now participate in its construction. This article explores two recent projects conducted at the iCinema Centre, where I was a research fellow from 2008 to 2011, and examines how they can be seen to reformulate Youngblood’s original concept of an expanded cinema in an age of social media, mixed reality and increasingly intelligent machines. The first project is titled Scenario and was produced by Dennis Del Favero with the scriptwriter Stephen Sewell and computer scientist Maurice Pagnucco. The second is a work in progress titled iLAND, produced by Del Favero and Jeffrey Shaw with the art historian Terry Smith and the climate scientist Johnny Chan.
