Modes of spectating by Alison Oddey ( )
8 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,079 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The notion of spectatorship has become of increasing interest as artists develop experimental works and manufacturers seek to produce the means for viewing such works. Modes of Spectating explores the visual landscapes which spectators encounter, and how they perceive what they view. The volume questions the effect of different mediums on the spectator and asks not only how we view, but also how what we view determines what artists create. Chapters discuss how gaming and televisual media and entertainment are used by young people, and the resulting psychological challenges of human beings in th

Re-framing the theatrical : interdisciplinary landscapes for performance by Alison Oddey ( Book )
7 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Alison Oddey takes us on a spectator's journey, engaging with art forms that cross boundaries of categorisation. She examines how these cross-art forms provoke a solo spectator-protagonist, and how the work becomes meditative and spiritual. In questioning the role of the spectator and the director, Oddey considers how a re-thinking and reclaiming of physical and artistic forms has contributed to a new kind of making theatre-art, searching for space and contemplation in a hectic twenty-first-century landscape. Highlighting the work of director Deborah Warner and of artists Heather Ackroyd, Dan Harvey and Graeme Miller, Oddey provocatively demonstrates the spectator as centre of the artistic experience, in an exciting and innovative analysis of the many changes taking place in contemporary performance
