Creeber, Glen

9781844574094 - Small Screen Aesthetics: From Television to the Internet

Artikelomschrijving

In this ground-breaking study, Glen Creeber gives a critical and historical account of small screen aesthetics, tracing its origins from the early days of television through to the arrival of the internet, YouTube and beyond. Creeber offers a comprehensive and lucid account of the ways small screen aesthetics have developed and evolved since the 1920s to the present day, clarifying and illustrating past debates while offering fresh and original insights into old and new ways of conceiving these diverse media forms. Divided into four loosely chronological chapters, the book documents important phases in the history of the small screen, from early TVs conception of itself as a piece of live relay, the textual complexity of the videographic look and the contemporary televisual notions of the real, to the cinematic aspirations of digital television, the new interactive aesthetics of PCTV and the arrival of the pc, laptop, tablet and smartphones as new small screens. Case Studies illustrate these discussions in more detail, including revealing analyses of I Love Lucy, The Avengers, The Osbournes, The Sopranos, CNN: International, Interactive TV, the webcam and Kony 2012.
