The Aesthetics of Sensation

The Aesthetics of Sensation

(p.63) Chapter 2 The Aesthetics of Sensation
Cinema and Sensation

Martine Beugnet

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter looks at the kind of processes of synaesthesia and correspondences by which contemporary filmmakers seek to destabilise the relationship between the subjective body and the objective world. Drawing on Bataille's concept of the formless, the chapter looks anew at techniques and effects such as the close-up, distortion and blurring.

Keywords:   Synaesthesia, correspondences, Close-Up, Formlessness, Aesthetics of Chaos
