Allegories of Communication provides insights into the shifting configurations of moving-image technologies. Contributors focus on technological change and the intermedial aspects of moving images from a variety of perspectives underscoring the need for cross-disciplinary dialogue. They discuss hardware concerns, questions of styles, reception patterns, and the cultural and social underpinnings of mediated vision. The distinction between the analog and the digital offers a focal point with implications for the charting of movements from the turn of one century to the next.
