Papers from Precarious Aesthetics

Last October BCNM invited scholars from around the world to come together and explore the complexity of the image and representation in the digital age.

Ian Bryce Jones (De Paul University, the School of the Art Institute of Chicago) and Linda Liu (University of Massachusetts, Boston) have released the most recent version of the papers they presented at Precarious Aesthetics. Jones' piece examines the videogame player as a viewer and subsequent aesthetic interaction within a virtual world while Liu's paper explores the appeal and digital evolution of found-footage horror.

Ian Bryce Jones - "A Generous Gestalt: The labor of letting-be in Phil Solomon’s In Memoriam: Mark LaPore and Psalm IV"

Linda Liu - "Mortal Cameras and Vulnerable Vision in Found-Footage Horror"
