Phenomenology's Material Presence Gabrielle A. Hezekiah read online review & book description:

Phenomenology’s Material Presence: Video, Vision and Experience is an exploration of phenomenology and the aesthetics of the moving image. Drawing on the insights of Edmund Husserl, Martin Heidegger and Maurice Merleau-Ponty, this seminal work addresses key questions related to the notion of encounter in cinematic viewing. How does video make visible the act of looking and the act of being seen? How does it intimate the presence of that which cannot be seen? What is the role of video’s material body in facilitating this process? Using a poetic essay style, and three videos by Trinidadian film-maker Robert Yao Ramesar, this book suggests that video performs its own act of phenomenological inquiry. Phenomenology’s Material Presence invites the reader to explore the role of consciousness in our experience of the visual and brings continental philosophy and postcolonial cinema into conversation.
