PHILIP POCOCK documentary datatectures Stand-In (Unmovie) Installation

2003 STAND-IN

Rather than attempting to situate the discourse of media within evolutionary models, Unmovie (and its group of collaborators) abandons the surface in favor of the situation, abandons the narrative in favor of the event, abandons immersion in favor of the atmosphere.

Time
A truer image of the world, I think, is obtained by picturing things as entering into the stream of time from an eternal world outside, than from a view which regards time as the devouring tyrant of all that is.
Bertrand Russell (1872-1970), British philosopher, mathematician. A Free Man's Worship
Time
For tribal man space was the uncontrollable mystery. For technological man it is time that occupies the same role.
Marshall McLuhan (1911-80), Canadian communications theorist. The Mechanical Bride, "Magic that Changes Mood" (1951)
