These two issues expand on the many possibilities in the moving images’ encounter with the artistic, material, and historic. One common thread to be found amongst the films discussed in Issue 1 concerns when moving images are not simply moving but shifting between other forms. Our contributors argue that the practice of intermediality across art, whether online or in situ, has become a means of dismantling – perhaps repurposing – the homogenising technologies of cinematic representation and its apparatus. Whereas Issue 2 brings together writing and conversations on contemporary and historic artists who find timely resonances both of a political and ecological nature in archival re-readings and retrievals.
