Mediating Things in Motion
(Audio)visual media structure and articulate our relation to speed, slowness, and mobility. In the arts, in the sciences, in the realms of commerce and government, as well as on the terrain of the everyday, they serve to organize perceptions and to ground understandings of various moving phenomena, of things and worlds in motion. The audio-/optico-technological capture and storage of such phenomena—accelerative objects and bodies, motive energies and materialities—have, in turn, enabled and impelled the reinvention or revaluation of certain media-aesthetic conventions and media-epistemic protocols.
