Artisanal Prefigurations of the Digital: Animating Realities, Collage Effects, and Theories of Image Manipulation

by Maureen Cheryn Turim

Wide Angle, Jan. 1999, v. 21, no. 1, pp. 49-62

In this article, Maureen Cheryn Turim looks at the artisanal predecessors to digital art-making techniques. Without judging on their value, she explores the dynamics between the analogue and the digital, in particular within the realm of photography and video-making. Only through such an analysis of these relationships, she states, can we attain a better knowledge of the digital.
