This course will explore representations and uses of time across multiple media, exploring artistic and industrial practices, technological developments and theories about temporality. Media texts, forms and related technologies examined in the course will include mainstream and experimental film, television and interactive media, with a focus on media objects which reference their own temporality or reconfigure time using methods such as repetition and time travel. The role of medium specificity in both the representation of time and our experiential understanding of temporality will be considered, as well as the cultural and social significance of historical shifts in notions of time. Texts and technologies to be examined will include Meshes of the Afternoon (1943), La Jetée (1962), Groundhog Day (1993), uses of instant replay, Donnie Darko (2001), Switching (2003), Decasia (2004), Lost (2004-2010), time-shifting on television (i.e. VCRs and TiVos), and Braid (2008). Participation in class discussion will be a required component of the course.
