The term “expanded cinema” covers a bewildering array of new moving image media and practices that began to appear in the 1960s, including video and TV, computer-imaging technologies, holography, light shows and film/video installation in the gallery. This talk takes a new approach to mapping the vast, untamed terrain of expanded cinema, both past and present, and attempts to answer the question: “How can cinema expand and still be cinema?" The talk considers both important historical works of expanded cinema from the 1960s and '70s, and the resurgence of such work - along with the questions and challenges it continues to pose - in the last decade.
