Writer about live cinema.


“‘Live Cinema’” today stands for the simultaneous creation of sound and image in real time by sonic and visual artists who collaborate to elaborate concepts on equal terms. The traditional parameters of narrative cinema are expanded by a much broader conception of cinematographic space, the focus of which is no longer the photographic construction of reality as seen by the camera’s eye, or linear forms of narration. The term ‘Cinema’ is now to be understood as embracing all forms of configuring moving images, beginning with the animation of painted or synthetic images.”—Mia Makela, “Live Cinema: Language and Elements,” MA Thesis, New Media Program, Media Lab, Helsinki University of Art & Design, April 2006.
