    B r e a t h i n g in Apichatpong



By drawing on installation artist and filmmaker Apichatpong Weerasethakul, and on feminist theorist and media artist Trinh T. Minh-ha, Donatella Valente’s video essay ‘B r e a t h i n g  in  Apichatpong’ reflects on the technical abilities of the video camera to ‘breathe’, which is to write and reshape space, and create a woman’s ‘fourth dimension’ where she locates a new realm of awareness and activity. Through her ‘seeing and being’ in the digital domain, poised between stillness and speed, woman thus outlines a new video aesthetic.
