Performing CPR on celluloid in Blow-Up
The article analyses how Blow-Up counteracts the Freudian death drive through hybridizing the materialist-digital dimension of the CPR imagery and the sonic-haptic experience of breathing. Consequently, while operating within the structural film and expanded cinema framework, Fruhauf symbolically embodies the celluloid, hence ‘resuscitating’ both the archival and contemporary cinematic material.
