computer culture

Computer culture is a variety of what is probably digital culture, and in the context of screen studies has a particular resonance.

However, the cinema screen is not equivalent to the computer screen (movies on computer are a phenomenologically different experience to movies on the big screen television is a reminder of this).

The aesthetic difference (and distance) between these forms is the difference between painting with light and illuminating pixels (light from outside versus light from inside).

For film studies digital culture may be as exceptional a development as it has been in production, but it remains to be seen what relation it will have to film culture.
