Ingo P.,
Two publications might assist you. The First is CAMERA LUCIDA, Roland Barthes, 1980. The second
is WAYS OF SEEING, John Berger, 1972. Each publications is short and to the point. Most
chapters (in each) can be implemented into Film Theory and Film Aesthetics as well as a number of
other art mediums. I use the publications as text/reference for teaching Experimental Film and
Video Production and often ask the students to acquire them. As well, there is a number of
examples in film, video and media installation that deals with "reel/real time" that you are
probably aware of: such as EMPIRE (1964) by Andy Warhol, WAVELENGTH (1966) by Michael Snow and
Video Installation Work by David Hall. Good luck and I hope this assists you.
