Jacqueline Furby: Time Travel in Cinema

About

Jacqueline Furby, Film Lecturer at Southampton Solent University and editor of Screen Methods: Comparitive Readings in Film Studies (with Karen Randell) will discuss the way film-makers have approached the subject of time and time travelling in cinema.
In their recent book they explore in detail how film studies, an increasingly popular subject at universities, has been studied theoretically, culturally and historically and the ways in which this has changed in the 21st century.

Based around the concept of time travel through both visual and aural manipulation of an artifact , the talk will focus on a chronological history of this theme in cinema and the impact it has had on the art world of today (installation work i.e Bill Viola). In close conjunction with this lecture, and the premise for a number of possible debates, is Nathaniel Mellors' current ArtSway exhibition, The Time Surgeon, which deals with the physical torture of a static and innate object, in this case a tape machine, to induce time travel via an hour-long installation.
