Confusing: movies should be first, not film. According to Monaco: Film as an Art (something from 200X). Next -- technology.

Should I start from I (end)? Film & Media: A Chronology (very closed to my timetable in Seven Ages of Cinema).

Part I. Film as an Art

Hummer: art or tech? Wheel: forms/ideas -- functionality. Work -- Idea.
Art is technology -- IT!

Art v. Science -- could science be seen as "low art"? "De-emotionalized science"?
"New Technologies" (techniques) require new instruments, but was the words, a technology developed by many (society). The 20th century tools of self-expression require direct participation of all in expression of one (?)

The Performance Arts (in real time)
The Representational Arts (depend on the established codes).
The Recording Arts
Spectrum of Abstruction p. 28 + The Modes of Discourse p. 30 (The Work, The Artist, The Observer).

[ Mass media must be ritualistic? High tech -- if not through consumption, then through production? ] [ Segments in class (movies): Terminator II, Godfather ... and Chaplin ]
