Rolling Volume 3 Editorial

Volume 3 of Screenworks (June 2012) was edited by Dr Charlotte Crofts and associate editor, Dr Steve Presence, both based at the University of the West of England with the support of the Digital Cultures Research Centre. Some of the submissions were also screened at the Postdigital Encounters JMP Symposium in 2011.

The work demonstrates the breadth of screen media practice ranging from audio-visual live performance, multi-screen works and site-specific installations to engagements with film as philosophy and the ontology of the camera lens itself.
