Issue FIVE of the SCA's Comparative Media Arts Journal (CMA Journal), an open-access, peer-reviewed graduate journal organized and produced by MA candidates in the SCA's MA: Comparative Media Arts program, is now online. Yani Kong, the current CMA Journal editor and PhD (Special Arrangement) candidate in the SCA, introduces the issue this way:
In this special-topics issue, Affective Framing: Cinematic Experience and Exhibition Design, guest editor Mallory Gemmel [SCA MA candidate] draws focus on the study of curation and the role exhibition design plays in shaping the viewer’s relationship with art. Taking inspiration from the affective faculties of narrative cinema and the ways in which viewers are pulled into the filmic life world through spectacle, narration and meaning making, this issue explores this relational process across the context of contemporary visual art.
