/ AV-ludens / on the psychogeography of the moving image

Planes / lines / scores: architectural and situationistic observations on the moving image / April 2007

This narrative–both its theoretic background as the visual references–is not a thesis, I would like to defend; it represents just the trial of some locating performance: where are the coordinates, after which the moving image can be described, shaped, interpreted; what does constitute its mediality and its aesthetic relevance? These questions do not structure a talk, but maybe they can embrace some movements in line with a talk, in the same way a map is not able to explain –not to describe– a landscape.
The map just reproduces the texture you will need, in order to recognize an item on a landscape–if subject, object or score: the map is the image of the claim to orient oneself, and not the one of a landscape or territory just to exist–as an object.
