Ontology for New Media Hybridity
Review of Jihoon Kim, Between Film, Video, and the Digital: Hybrid Moving Images in the Post-media Age, New York: Bloomsbury, 2016, 404 pp., ISBN 978-1-6289-2293-6.
In Between Film, Video, and the Digital: Hybrid Moving Images in the Post-media Age, Jihoon Kim tries to describe the ontology of contemporary artworks produced within the universe of New Media Art, particularly the ontology of those works he understands as hybrid moving images, images whose typical materialities are denatured, deconstructed, and resignified when remediated through digital platforms, technical supports or artistic practices initially strange to them. Revising theories by important art critics of the last decades, such as Clement Greenberg and Rosalind Krauss, and combining them with theories by contemporary art critics, such as Lev Manovich and Peter Weibel, Kim provides us new tools for understanding why this New Media hybridity is feasible as visual fruition, as well as why it is progressively capable of grasping new, historically-oriented, image possibilities.
