DREAMLANDS: IMMERSIVE CINEMA AND ART, 1905-2016. Chrissie Iles. Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, 2016. Distributed by Yale University Press, New Haven. 256 pp. with 400 ills. (300 col.). 30 x 25 cm. ISBN 9780300221879 In English.
Due date: November 2016. Publisher's description: This generously illustrated publication surveys the work of filmmakers and artists who have pushed the material and conceptual boundaries of cinema. Over the past century, the material, optical, abstract, spatial, and tactile properties of film have been tested at a level of experimentation and utopian ambition that is generally unrecognized. Whether creating synesthetic or 3-D environments, projective or non-projective installations, generations of leading-edge artists have explored how technology transforms experience. The essays published here offer an intensive look at the themes of cinematic space, formats of the screen, animation and CGI, the body and the cyborg, and the materiality of film. Contributors place particular emphasis on the idea of the cinema as a sensorium and on the ways in which it defines the human body, both through representation and in relation to the projected image. An immersive plate section brings together rarely seen and previously unpublished stills, in addition to concept drawings from historic and contemporary films.
