ERKKI HUHTAMO PDF

Since the mids, Huhtamo has written his research in English. It has covered a wide range of issues related with media culture and the technological arts, including interactive media, simulator entertainments, the genealogy of the screen, "peep media" a notion he has coined , [2] stereoscopic art and media in public spaces. His work has often been aimed to excavate, resurrect and analyze neglected and forgotten media. One of its guiding lines is the combination of topos theory with media archaeology. Things that seem unprecedented, and are promoted as such by cultural agents, may in fact be topoi in disguise. Huhtamo worked as the programmer of the Muu Media Festival, Helsinki, between

Beginning in the late eighteenth century, huge circular panoramas presented their audiences with resplendent representations that ranged from historic battles to exotic locations. Such panoramas were immersive but static. There were other panoramas that moved—hundreds, and probably thousands of them.

Their history has been largely forgotten. In Illusions in Motion , Erkki Huhtamo excavates this neglected early manifestation of media culture in the making. Showmen exhibited such panoramas in venues that ranged from opera houses to church halls, creating a market for mediated realities in both city and country. In the first history of this phenomenon, Huhtamo analyzes the moving panorama in all its complexity, investigating its relationship to other media and its role in the culture of its time.

In his telling, the panorama becomes a window for observing media in operation. Huhtamo explores such topics as cultural forms that anticipated the moving panorama; theatrical panoramas; the diorama; the "panoramania" of the s and the career of Albert Smith, the most successful showman of that era; competition with magic lantern shows; the final flowering of the panorama in the late nineteenth century; and the panorama's afterlife as a topos, traced through its evocation in literature, journalism, science, philosophy, and propaganda.

Beside researching, teaching, and crisscrossing the world, I enjoy cycling, running, swimming, and growing, roasting, grinding and drinking my own coffee in LA - something I could not even dream about doing in Finland! I have published extensively on media culture and arts during the past quarter of a century my early books were in my native tongue Finnish.

Media archaeology is an emerging approach within media studies I have pioneered with a number of other scholars since the early s. It excavates forgotten, neglected and suppressed media-cultural phenomena, helping us to penetrate beyond canonized accounts about media culture. I have applied this approach to phenomena like 'peep media' a notion I have coined , stereoscopy, the screen, electronic games, and mobile media.

I also write about contemporary art, and have curated quite a few exhibitions in different countries. It took me more than a decade, and made me travel all around the world looking for clues. In fact, practicing media archaeology can be true historical detective work. I hope that the readers of Illusions in Motion will find the results both challenging and inspiring. I always try to be as clear and logical as I possible can, and I pay a lot of attention to style.

I am already actively working on new books which I hope to finish much sooner this time. One of them will discuss "media archaeology as topos study" and another "The Media Apparatus. My latest books were published in early in Japanese and Italian. Verso un'archeologia dello schermo" Elements of Screenology: Toward an Archaeology of the Screen, trans. Roberto Terrosi, Kaiak Edizioni, Please check them under my name in Amazon. I have currently no plans to publish these books in English. Last but not least, I enjoy collecting antique optical devices such as magic lanterns, peep show boxes, phenakistiscopes, praxinoscopes, kinoras and other fascinating things.

I use them in my research and teaching, and also to illustrate my books, as you can easily see from the pages of Illusions in Motion. I always search for original historical documents such as broadsides, playbills and posters to add to my collection. As the photos on this page show, I also give magic lantern shows with original nineteenth-century equipment and hand-painted slides, accompanied by musicians and foley sound effect artists!
