Deleuze, Altered States and Film

Anna Powell

Edinburgh University Press

This book sets out to accomplish a distinctive remapping of the film experience as altered state, using both the film-philosophical insights of Gilles Deleuze and his broader investigations with Félix Guattari as inspiration. It extends Deleuze's work in deploying art as a tool to investigate the nature of cinematic perception, and mobilises a productive assemblage with the work of other practitioners from the fields of both art and philosophy. The book aims to approach film in its specificity, as an experiential process as well as a stimulus to philosophical thought; discusses inductive film techniques and their functions; and describes the aesthetics of special effects pivotal to altered states film.

Keywords:   film experience, altered state, Gilles Deleuze, Félix Guattari, art, cinematic perception, philosophical thought, special effects
