I'm wondering what the implications are of the widespread use of digital
manipulation/computer animation in film. When it becomes common knowledge
amongst the audience that events represented in the film narrative can be
seamlessly constructed from elements that cannot be said to exist in the
same way that actors and sets exist before, during and after shooting,
then the audience must shift its expectations about the veracity of the
image over text.
 
Also, it seems to me that when articulation of spacial and temporal
elements is done counterintuitively, as occurs in the Quays' _Institute
Benjamenta_, then the verity of the visual over the audial, or of image
over text, is subverted.
