The Emergence of Cinematic Time Book Description:

In a work that captures and reconfigures the passing moments of art, history, and philosophy, Mary Ann Doane shows how the cinema, representing the singular instant of chance and ephemerality in the face of the increasing rationalization and standardization of the day, participated in the structuring of time and contingency in capitalist modernity.

Tsai Ming liang and a Cinema of Slowness Book Description:

This is the first dedicated study of all of Tsai Ming-Liangs feature length films to date. One of contemporary cinemas most distinctive filmmakers, Tsais films are typically slow paced and minimalist in plot, dialogue and characterization, full of static long takes with very little happening within the shots. Rather than provide a chronological survey of Tsais films, the book is theorized through the concept of slowness. It examines the two filmic elements, sights and sound, through detailed analysis of Tsais use of stillness and silence, it also situates Tsais filmmaking in the context of a trend in contemporary cinema toward slowness, by directors as diverse as Abbas Kiarostami, Bela Tarr, and Aleksandr Sokurov. The author argues that slowness in cinema can be seen as a response to the increasing pace of mainstream films as well as to the unstoppable speed of a postmodern world compressed in time and space.

Animism Book Description:

"What is the role of aesthetic processes in the drawing of the boundaries between nature and culture, humans and things, the animate and inanimate? Structured around the aesthetic processes and effects of animation and mummification, Animism brings together artistic and theoretical perspectives that reflect on the boundary between subjects and objects, and the modern anxiety that accompanies the relation between 'persons' and 'things.'"

The Pivot of the World Book Description:

"The Pivot of the World looks at an exceptional effort to work out that geopolitical tension by cultural means as developed in three hugely ambitious photographic projects: The Family of Man exhibition that opened in 1955 and traveled the world for the next decade; Robert Frank's influential book The Americans, photographed in 1955-1956 and first published in 1958; and Bernd and Hilla Becher's typological record of industrial architecture, begun in 1957 and continuing today."--BOOK JACKET.

Stillness and Time Book Description:

"This collection of essays by leading photographic and film theorists considers the changing relationship between the still and moving image in contemporary culture. The photograph has traditionally been seen as a quintessentially still image. Its ability to freeze and hold a moment in time has been the source of its peculiar fascination and the foundation of much of the theoretical discussion about it. New technological developments in digital media, however, have fundamentally altered the ways in which we think about photography, in particular forcing us to reconsider our assumptions about the still and the moving image and their relationships to differing conceptions of time. Amongst the topics addressed in these essays are: the work of artists who extend the still image in time through the use of video or narrative sequencing; the aesthetic and philosophical analyses of stasis; the place of the pose and tableau in contemporary photography and film; the iconography of photography in cinema; and the notion of the cinematic fragment and cultural memory."--BOOK JACKET.
