is invention, there is accident,” and that the accident “reveals something
important that we would not otherwise be able to perceive.” Writing of one
momentous invention, Mary Ann Doane identifies cinema’s driving impulse as
a “curious merger of contingency and structure,” suggesting that the moving
image participates in the taming of the unpredictable while simultaneously
reinforcing its power.
