The Material and the Code [us Chicago]

Cinema is dead; long live cinema (Peter Greenaway). How has the explosion of new media changed the ways we think about cinema, about questions of film aesthetics and film history? How can cinema studies contribute to the theory, analysis, and creative practice of new media? This two-day symposium seeks to stimulate a crossdisciplinary conversation on moving image culture that avoids both cinephile nostalgia and uncritical celebrations of media convergence.

The Material and the Code is a two-day symposium at the University of Chicago’s Film Studies Center. It features a screening on February 26, and a full day of presentations on February 27.

The Material and the Code is dedicated to the memory of Anne Friedberg (1952-2009).

“Claiming Its Space: Machinima” by Michael Nitsche

Claiming Its Space: Machinima by Michael Nitsche, Dichtung-Digital #37, 2007:

ABSTRACT: Although machinima has grown exponentially, it remains a largely undefined digital artistic practice in-between existing traditions. Machinima makers freely sample/ combine/ and break elements of traditional media. They “play” their references. This essay does not attempt to fix machinima to any single definition but will identify the intermedia relations to better position machinima into the digital media landscape. The argument will target three main influences: film, television, and theatrical performance. To exemplify these points the essay will discuss exemplary and relevant machinima pieces. It puts emphasis on the real-time aspects in production and play back to highlight the key specifics of this relatively new format.
