Title: Timeshift on Video Culture
Authors: Cubitt, Sean
Keywords: video culture
Digital Culture
Video Art
Issue Date: 1991
Publisher: Routledge New York (new edition 2012)
Abstract: The book argues that video, rather than film or television, has the potential to become a uniquely democratic medium. Through electronic recording: video rental, off-air recordings, music videos, community, campaign or artists' videos, viewers have found a new set of cultural relations, uses and practices. Testing current semiotic, post-modernist and psychoanalytic approaches in the laboratory of real life viewing, the book presents a perceptive analysis of present day video culture.
Description: Focusing on the aesthetics of video, Timeshift tests current semiotic, postmodernist and psychoanalytic approaches in the laboratory of real-life video viewing.
