The Not-So Immaterial Digital Image
Film scholar Angelos Koutsourakis reviews A Geology of Media in the New Review of Film and Television Studies.
Koutsourakis ties the book to some discussions in screen studies and film theory, and addresses among other topics, materiality of cinema:
“Questions of materiality, the primacy of technological mediation (or the apparatus in the German employment
of the word, and not in its Lacanian misuse in the late 1960s and early 1970s) become once again germane as well as questions of illusionism (in the Benjaminian sense of the concealment of social labour).”
