Digital Encounters by Aylish Wood

Book Description

Digital Encounters is a cross media study of digital moving images in animation, cinema, games, and installation art. In a world increasingly marked by proliferating technologies, the way we encounter and understand these story-worlds, game spaces and art works reveals aspects of the ways in which we organize and decode the vast amount of visual material we are bombarded with each day. Working with examples from The Incredibles, The Matrix, Tomb Raider: Legend and Bill Viola's Five Angels for the Millennium, Aylish Wood considers how viewers engage with the diverse interfaces of digital effects cinema, digital games and time-based installations, and argues that technologies alter human engagement, distributing our attention across a network of images and objects.

Software, Animation and the Moving Image by Aylish Wood Software, Animation and the Moving Image, Hardback (December 2014)

Software, Animation and the Moving Image brings a unique perspective to the study of computer-generated animation by placing interviews undertaken with animators alongside an analysis of the user interface of animation software. Wood develops a novel framework for considering computer-generated images found in visual effects and animations.

Technoscience in Contemporary American Film by Aylish Wood Technoscience in Contemporary American Film, Paperback (July 2002)

This analysis of images of science and technology from popular films of the 1980s and 1990s argues that films as diverse as the science fiction film "Jurassic Park", the melodrama "Lorenzo 's Oil" and the "Gremlin" comic fantasies contribute to popular understandings of science and technology.
