The Screen Matter research group is concerned with moving image as it embodies the intersection between material and virtual spaces. The Screen Matter program proposes an understanding of the screen as a moment of transition between virtual and material states. Moving image is seen here as infinitely malleable and fractured material dislocated from any single source, awaiting activation within specific contexts and parameters. In this regard we will engage with EYE as an extension of the screen, creating new points of departure by using material from the archive combined with our own contributions towards new arrangements and interpretations. Here, EYE functions as a material embodiment and selection filter for multiple timelines and potential narratives.
