interests ranged widely and encompassed the new media" of the

technologies their artistic potential, social influence, and
relationship to existing art forms have been translated here for

approach to a range of visual media and the relevance of his
critical thought to our own era of new media. An exciting companion
to the essential What Is Cinema? volumes, Andre Bazin's New Media

the history of media.
