Day Eighteen: Spatial Montage
Within this kind of digital image, there’s a complete redefinition of what had previously been considered video. It is not just vertical, horizontal and temporal limitations that are transgressed; the (moving) digital image no longer bears any resemblance to a montage in Eisenstein’s terms. It reveals (and can occasionally obscure) how discrete sections of data might be manipulated through superimposed layers, presenting a kind of spatial montage.
There’s a detail I’ve been looking for in the gallery space, and I’m not sure I’ve found it yet, or if this image and shot will eventually work in context.
