Phenomenology meets Physics June 30 2009
By Z. Cheney - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a thoughtful, rather original treatment of light and space in cinematic media that effectively weds the visible with the invisible, the real with the unreal, the phenomenological with the physical. If you expect philosophy, you will find a kind of poetry here. Lippit wallows in a liminal space, finding and expanding fuzzy in-between areas that have been problematic or neglected in cinema studies. Accessibility isn't Lippit's main priority; nor is coherence, strictly speaking. Instead, he submerges his thought in the present zeitgeist and observes the numerous dialectics inherent in the physical world and exploited by cinema.
