A cinema of presence and proximity: Gunvor Nelson’s collage films and the aesthetics of the signaletic material before the electronic signal
Karlstad University, Faculty of Arts and Education.

Abstract [en]

This essay argues for the importance of an intersubjective

and impure film theory in which the signal and the

signaletic is considered as figures for approaching film.

This in order to make the argument that the signaletic

mode indeed enables a novel perspective on moving image

history. The aesthetics of the signaletic has thus a history

preceding that of electronic media, in particular when it

comes to animation and experimental film. When constructing

such an archaeology, however, dichotomies into

sign and signal should be avoided; otherwise, the complexity

of many of the films is reduced. In order to illuminate

the latter point, four films by Gunvor Nelson is analyzed

(both analog and digital), showing not only how both sign

and signal interact but also how the aesthetics of the signal

and the signaletic material is not dependant on the

electronic as such.
