Expanded Cinema

When  we  say  expanded  cinema  we  actually  mean  expanded  consciousness.  Expanded  cinema  does  not  mean  computer  films,  video  phosphors,  atomic  light,  or  spherical  projections.  Expanded  cinema isn’t a movie at all: like life it’s a process of becoming, man’s  ongoing historical drive to manifest his consciousness outside of his  mind,  in  front  of  his  eyes.  One  no  longer  can  specialize  in  a  single  discipline  and  hope  truthfully  to  express  a  clear  picture  of  its  relationships in the environment. This is especially true in the case of  the intermedia network of cinema and television, which now functions  as nothing less than the  nervous system of mankind

Too Much World

Hito Steyerl es acertadamente considerada como una de las artistas más interesantes de hoy en día que especula sobre el impacto de Internet y la digitalización en el tejido de nuestras vidas diarias. Sus películas y escritos ofrecen un astuto, provocativo, y a menudo divertido análisis de la vertiginosa velocidad con la que  las imágenes y datos se reconfiguran, se alteran y se dispersan, muchas veces, acelerando hasta el infinito o estrellándose en el olvido.
