Ephemeral media : Transitory screen culture from television to YouTube / Paul Grainge

Subject: CONVERGENCE; INTERNET AND THE CINEMA; INTERNET AND TV; SOCIAL MEDIA AND THE CINEMA; ONLINE VIDEO PROGRAMMING; COMPUTERIZED ANIMATION AND SPECIAL EFFECTS; COMPUTERS AND THE CINEMA; YOUTUBE; ADVERTISING Summary: "From the television interstitials that appear between programmes to the brief clips and videos that proliferate on YouTube, contemporary screen culture is populated by short-forms that make claims for our attention. Ephemeral Media provides a unique focus on these fleeting but increasingly ubiquitous texts. Through case studies in television and web entertainment, this original book looks at the production of media at the edges, within the junctions, and that surround the output of networks and studios. Analyzing promos and idents, emergent forms of online TV and web drama, and the burgeoning world of worker- and user-generated content, this new collection also examines screen forms that circulate "between," "beyond" and "below" the TV programs and films traditionally privileged within screen studies. With essays by leading international scholars in television, film and new media studies, as well as interviews with key industry figures, Ephemeral Media explores the practices, strategies and textual forms helping producers (and viewers) negotiate a fast-paced mediascape. Examining dynamics of brevity and evanescence in the television and new media environment, Ephemeral Media provides a new perspective on the transitory, and transitional, nature of screen culture in the early 21st century"-- Blurb Notes: Formerly CIP.

The first part of the book focuses on geographical considerations, showing how marketers have to adapt their strategies locally as films travel across borders. The second covers new marketing possibilities offered by the Internet, as Vine, Facebook and other participative websites open new venues for big distributors and independents alike.

Synthetics : aspects of art and technology in Australia, 1956-1975 / Stephen Jones
Cambridge, Massachusetts: MIT Press,
Call No: 220"313" JON Author: Jones, Stephen Edition: 2011 Place: Cambridge, Massachusetts Publisher: MIT Press PhysDes: xii,395 p. : illustrated ; 24 cm Series: Leonardo Subject: TECHNOLOGICAL DEVELOPMENTS; TECHNOLOGY AND THE CINEMA. AUSTRALIA; COMPUTER GRAPHICS. AUSTRALIA; COMPUTERS AND THE CINEMA; BURNS, TIM; CANTRILL, ARTHUR & CORINNE; GLASHEEN, MICHAEL; PERRY, DAVID; THOMS, ALBIE; ULURU (AT, Michael Glasheen, 1978) Summary: New technologies continually arise, offering repeated opportunities to artists in search of the technologically novel. Stephen Jones calls this phenomenon the "rolling new," and in Synthetics he describes how artists in Australia used new technologies in their art, from the early days of digital computing in the 1950s to a landmark exhibition in 1975. Jones looks at not only the artists and the artworks they produced but also at the evolution of computing technologies and video displays as these new forms of media developed into tools that artists could use. He also examines the collaborations that sprang up between artists and the technologists who taught them how to use these new devices. The process, he finds, was reciprocal: the offerings of the engineer could inspire the artist as much as the needs of the artist could inspire the engineer.
Jones discusses the constraints imposed by the limitations of new technologies as they developed and shows that different types of output and display technologies made for the production of very different kinds of images. He explores the development of computer graphics, the use by artists of such new conceptual paradigms as post-object art, and the emergence of video art in the late 1960s and early 1970s. By 1975, the art and technology movement in Australia reached something of a watershed. The work itself became established as an art form just as funding dwindled and a popular and supportive left-wing government left office. And yet, Jones writes, the early electronic artists laid the foundation for today's burgeoning culture of new media art in Australia. -- publisher's web site ISBN: 9780262014960 Donation: Megan McMurchy More info
