2016 ChoiceReviews  
Cinema has always displayed an affinity to characters with a distorted relation to reality, stricken by madness, make-believe and hallucination.  ...  Truman Burbank of THE TRUMAN SHOW spends his life in a TV studio world as the unknowing star of a life-long daily reality show directed by a megalomaniac filmmaker; the world of MATRIX turns out to be  ...  The research described in this thesis was made possible by a PhD fellowship at the Amsterdam School for Cultural Analysis (Universiteit van Amsterdam) Acknowledgements Bibliography and Filmography  ...

PH Perera, HMSPB Herath, WSK Fernando, MPB Ekanayake, GMRI Godaliyadda, JV Wijayakulasooriya
2016 Journal of the National Science Foundation of Sri Lanka  
The proposed method is capable of producing reliable clustering results online, amidst a number of complications including dynamic backgrounds, object shadows, camera distortions, sudden foreground bursts  ...  This paper proposes a comprehensive method for online-event clustering in videos. Adaptive Gaussian mixture of foreground and they were modelled using the time series modelling technique.  ...  However, neither the AGMM nor RGB gives a perfect decision on pixel status as to whether it is beyond any doubt a foreground pixel.  ...

How Things Look (and What Things Look That Way) [chapter]

Mohan Matthen
2010 Perceiving the World  
What colour does a white wall look in the pinkish light of the late afternoon? What shape does a circular table look when you are standing next to it?  ...  I shall argue that by determining which object is involved in this way, we can determine the subject of visual predication.  ...  Then the size of the after--image varied with the place on the sheet of paper on which it was projected; if it fell on a part corresponding to a near part of the tunnel it was considerably smaller than  ...

How can that which is beyond articulation be articulated? constructions of belief through doubt and faith

Kiron Mckinley Robinson
relationships that seek a position of simultaneity as a propositional position from which to articulate that which is beyond articulation.  ...  Belief is an outworking in spite of reason, an irrational action. It is a paradoxical action of faith. Faith is not faith without doubt.  ...  The bend that promised to move at touch and so change its arrested form highlighted the surety of the coloured bars that sat so out of place on the plane of the image.  ...

A Portrait of the Computer as a Young Artist

Holger Briel
2018 IAFOR Journal of Cultural Studies  
But here also lies the problem: many of the consumers of these images are oblivious to the fact that these materials have been constructed by social actors with specific backgrounds and specific agendas  ...  They circulate within a system of non-photography as sketched by François Laruelle (2013) and are akin to the "objects" described in Quentin Meillassoux' Beyond Finitude (2010).  ...  The book is a valuable compendium of examples of how image interpretations differ from place to place.  ...

The paper shows that each novella or short story treats "the spirit of place", albeit in a deferent light: the place may embody the Spirit, the Shadow, the Anima or Animus archetypes.  ...  The place serves as the physical location of the quest, while the workings of the soul reveal such forms of spiritual and mystical aspects as Spirit-Animus, Spirit-Shadow, sacrifice and rebirth.  ...  For I know I passed on beyond the strata of images and words, beyond the iron veins of memory, and even the jewels of rest, to sink in the final dark like a fish, dumb, soundless, and imageless, yet alive  ...

Opening the Eyes of Memory: War Painting in Adriano Sousa Lopes and Amadeo de Souza-Cardoso [chapter]

Maria Teresa Amado, Ana Rita Rodrigues
2017 Second Language Learning and Teaching  
How can we bring to life a war which became a huge generalized massacre, a mechanical war with tanks, artillery, gas, airplanes and submarines, hidden and without a face, with no clear goals?  ...  After a hundred years, when we open the eyes of memory with photographs, drawings and paintings of the Great War, it is impossible not to feel the horror of war.  ...  Confronted with these images, and beyond their value as documents, as a means of not forgetting, we can´t avoid the question of what exactly the purpose of the art of the period is?  ...

This system helps to overcome the Field of View (FoV) of each IRT image and provides a three-dimensional reading of the thermal behaviour of the object.  ...  Knowing the approximate distance between the two sensors, and making the necessary simplifications allowed by the low resolution of the thermal sensor, we projected the colour of the IR images to the RGB  ...  With this premises, the IR image recognition of points and edges can be very challenging.  ...
