  • Tangible Territory Inviting the Body into the Experience of Moving Image

Stehlikova, Tereza, 2012, Thesis, Tangible Territory Inviting the Body into the Experience of Moving Image PhD thesis, Royal College of Art.

Abstract or Description:

This thesis identifies approaches to film-making which stimulate a relationship of active involvement between the cinematic image and the viewer through the evocation of tactility and embodied memory, thus inviting the viewer’s whole body into the experiencing of the moving image. I do this specifically by defining and exploring, in theory and practice, the concept of tangible territory which, I propose, emerges from the encounter between the viewer’s embodied self and the moving image work.

Key words: touch, tactility, embodied memory, haptic visuality, moving image, tangible territory
