« Chroniques de l'écran.  Les apports de la proxémie dans l'élaboration d'une nouvelle taxinomie »

Abstract : Created at the end of the 19th century, the cinematograph distinguished itself from other moving pictures apparatus since it combined both a projector and a screen. Although the projector was specifically designed for projecting movies, the screen already had a long history of its own. This is a fact that tends to be forgotten, as it is quite notable that the cinema screen has overshadowed all previous forms of screen. A study of these different models will contribute to the analysis of contemporary devices which border the field of the cinema. After a brief study of the history of the screen, it will be interesting to consider its evolution as an indicator of a cultural phenomenon in connection with the movie industry. Finally, we will list and map out some interesting post-cinematographic screens to show how the scope of their use, set out by their designers, can limit the practices of their users. Proxemics, as a science whose purpose is to study the spatial organization of cultural features, will help shed light on the links between these various artefacts throughout the history of the cinema.
