Description/Abstract

Arguments for the 'Death of Cinema" hold that film's realist destiny has been betrayed by digital technologies. Arguments for the 'Post medium Condition' hold, against the medium-specificity of Greenberg and after de Duve's art made of 'n'importe quoi', that medium no longer matters. In papers on colour separation and management, the temporalities of film and electronic frames, optical construction of volume and chip design, I argue that the material matters more than ever, but that crude binaries do not help understand the dialectic of standardization and divergence characteristic of contemporary mediation. This is especially true of the glass technologies that are key to the history of projection and of digital networks.
