Abstract

This article addresses the materialist screen works of Canadian artist Michael Snow. It argues that Snow’s lifelong experimentations with different media technologies have always encompassed a rigorous and precise understanding of the phenomenology of the different viewing situations in which his works are seen. Two aspects of Snow’s practice are singled out as inherently connected: medium specificity and audiency. Snow’s artworks provide us with unique opportunities to grasp the complexities of changing forms of intermediality and spectatorship at a time when media are more fluid and ephemeral than ever before.
