Conventional cinema constructs a strict demarcation between filmic space and the architecture of the auditorium. In acknowledging the constructed nature of the filmic situation, moving image installation has the potential to transgress this metaphysical boundary between “virtual” and “real”: to establish an encounter with a figural presence. Here, our orientation toward the virtual image is brought into play, but in such a way that ambiguities of location problematize the spectator position, revealing the radical nonmateriality of the filmic image. Using examples of my own work and others, I examine how such works address an inherent filmic tension between the moving and still image, drawing upon photography’s spectral indexicality to blur the boundary between life and death.
