Bergson and the Art of Immanence

Felicity Colman

Edinburgh University Press

Chapter tests Bergson’s theory of the immanent behaviour of cinematographic forms against the collaborative film work of American artists’ Robert Smithson and Nancy Holt. Smithson was well aware of Bergson’s work and aspects of the conceptualization of entropy and duration that Bergson discusses in Creative Evolution are investigated in Smithson’s solo works. The chapter also looks more widely at methodological questions surrounding the use of a Bergsonian cinematographic consciousness in relation to the visual arts

Keywords:   Smithson, Bergson, Holt, cinematography
