Summary note:
"Mark Lewis works at the boundaries of the white cube and the black box, exploring the limits and the potentialities of cinema. He investigates, for example, standardized film conventions such as credits, end sequences and scenes between actions, as well as elementary film devices, including camera movements, zooms or pans. Starting with a deconstructionist perspective, Mark Lewis has developed his own formal language, reminiscent of early cinema in a post-conceptual age. This volume includes a portfolio by Mark Lewis, an interview with the artist, and a series of essays which draw on tools forged in the fields of art history, philosophy and film studies. The publication gives access, on the internet, to a selection of films of Mark Lewis, representative of his wide-ranging formai and conceptual approach, from his first "impossible" films to his lacer "possible" works."--Page 4 of cover.
