The volume provides exemplary analyses and evidences of what has been seen as the 'medial turn' in cultural studies, as well as the 'iconic' and 'pictorial turns' in art history and beyond. At the leading edge of science, technology, and media philosophy and theory, this book contends that a new digitally enhanced 'realist turn' has emerged in the Arts, and in the art of the moving image in particular. The key question framing the initial discussion of this book is whether images are predicated upon transgressing the boundaries of their framing, and whether in the course of their historically and form?evolutionary altered states in the Arts and in all forms of medial projection they have developed a 'life of their own'.
