Sample text

A film jury has to operate within very strict timeframes, but it is helped by the unstructured time that elapses between viewing a film and discussing it in a plenum session with other jury members. This enables individual members to lobby for or alter their initial perceptions and views through informal social interaction (Mathieu and Bertelsen). Second, time can also be a conditioning factor depending on the medium or communicative channel used. For example, the fact that a fashion show conventionally lasts for an absolute maximum of twenty minutes affects how many items a designer can show, which in itself influences her choice of garments: formal and informal, office and sportswear, evening dress and casual skirt, bridal dress, and so on.

Retail outlets – a jewellery store, for example, or department store gallery – use space to order goods on display: cheap objects are placed in the shop window and near the entrance in order to entice customers inside; once there, they are steadily drawn in to the most expensive items on display, often placed on plinths or behind glass to signify their value. Perhaps the most notable example in this volume of the constraints imposed by spatial conditions is Shannon O’Donnell’s discussion of rehearsals for Sir John Tavener’s composition for four string quartets.

With a few clicks of a mouse stray wisps of hair can be removed from, or a beauty spot inserted on, a model’s face. Airbrushing is the norm, rather than the exception.

It also allows them to introduce new materials, such as the use of flat liquid-crystal display screens in the work of video artists. The development of industrially manufactured steel frames for guitars, together with amplifying equipment, led to a move away from large musical ensembles and to the formation of small bands, which itself instigated the emergence of the genre of rock music (Hutter 2008: 65–67, 69–70).
