The following essay concerns audio-visual representations of the sense of touch in cinema, with a focus on contemplative and experimental cinema, and the affect it has on a general audience.
To explain what happens physiologically and psychologically that allows us to feel, I've studied the works of authors, specialists in the fields of phenomenology, philosophy, intercultural studies, film theory and cognitive research. I've selected chapters within their works relevant to my topic, which I read attentively over the past months. Fewer resources were found online. Many resources I found were explicitly linked to my topic, others more broadly connected to it.
I encountered fascinating pieces of writing, as to how cinema conveys an impression of touch, through intangible senses. I hope to explore, furthermore, this topic in the future, and perhaps use the knowledge I've acquired on it to incorporate it in an audiovisual piece.
