Evan Calder Williams – Shard Cinema

Only 1 left in stock


With a range that takes in games, architecture, technology, and war, a cultural historian examines the history of film crosses from the early twentieth century to the present.
Shard Cinema tells an expansive story of how moving images have changed in the last three decades and how they changed us along with them, rewiring the ways we watch, fight, and navigate an unsteady world. Williams examines the steady development the composite image, where no clean distinction can be made between production and post-production, the filmed and the animated, the material and the digital. Giving equal ground to costly blockbusters and shaky riot footage, Williams leads us from computer-generated “shards” of particles and debris to the broken phone screen on which we watch those digital storms, looking for the unexpected histories lived in the interval between.
