The Cinema Effect

Illusion, Reality, and the Moving Image

Published by Hirshhorn Museum/D Giles Limited
Text by Kerry Brougher, Kelly Gordon, Anne Ellegood, Kristen Hileman, Tony Oursler.

This volume offers an in-depth exploration of contemporary moving-image art, examining the ways in which "the cinematic" has blurred cultural distinctions between reality and illusion. Cinema was the unrivaled art form of the twentieth century; in the art world, the use of film and video and the appropriation of cinematic language and devices for works in a range of media have been growing since the early 1960s. In the realm of popular culture, the influence of this technology and its vocabulary have grown to the point where the boundaries between "real life" and make-believe are at the least blurred and at most indecipherable.
Opening with Kerry Brougher's overview of the cultural, social and psychological issues raised by The Cinema Effect, the book divides into two parts which reflect the opposing poles of cinema, and the roles they play in art and contemporary culture. The first section, Dreams, opens with a discussion by Kelly Gordon of how and why moving-image work has shifted from the margins to the center of art production. This essay considers the analogous relationship between cinema technology and the psychology of dreams, as well as the ways in which artists compel or challenge suspension of disbelief. The second section, Realisms, shifts the focus to the larger societal impact of the pervasiveness of cinema, looking at the work of emerging artists. In this section Anne Ellegood examines issues of subjectivity and identity in the featured artists' work and Kristen Hileman explores the complex issue of authenticity.
