Abstract / Description

This thesis represents an investigation of the aesthetic codes and strategies used within visual art to represent and construct space, time and movement.
By examining the representation and construction of space and time through art and its intrinsic relationship with the structure of thought, this investigation reveals why an investigation of space and time is essentially an investigation of the subjective observer, and how this new perspective can help us to revise our understanding of art.
The study includes a number of surveys of strategies used by artists to represent and construct space and time and a typology of the possibilities of combining space and time in an artwork. The study also includes an exploration of modes of interactivity, the relationship between the new media score and the structure of the work, hue and markedness and the relationships between digital and tangible media.
The research leads to two new kinds of work, the Chronopan and the Chronocyclograph. Reflection upon this work offers new insights into space and dimensionality, oppositions, the instant and duration.
