Deferred Actions - Jason Dee


Jason Dee used 20th Century cinema as a pivotal point around a two-way dynamic turn, comparing and contrasting pre-cinematic audio/visual technologies with today’s new media. The use of loops, and a more discrete, layered relationship between space and movement, which is made possible by digital technology, are paralleled by similar visual techniques found in 19th`Century apparatus, such as zoetropes and dioramas.

This presents a more cyclical aspect of media development, showing how technology and social changes inform and influence each other over a bedrock of universally resonant themes: love and desire, isolation and fear.
