Big screens, small forms, visual varieties in digital media culture, Lisa Gotto - ebook

We are witnessing an era with more screens than ever before, and withineach screen, a multitude of visual varieties. Lisa Gotto investigatesthis medial diversity as a field of tension between large and smallforms of digital image culture. This includes, on the one hand, theimmersive potential of large image arrangements, such as digital 3Dcinema, and, on the other hand, the compactness of mobile image forms,such as those of the smartphone film or the media practices ofInstagram. Weaving together a rich variety of examples and sources, thisbook presents a multifaceted collection of essays that explore thetransformational potential of digital media culture, contextualize itsmedia-technical conditions, and reflect on its social consequences
