In the CMIR logo above you see to the left, Newton by Blake, and to the right the Tekhne, the Goddess of Art, Science and Technology. CMIR are interested in how the history of the moving image has been rolled back beyond the birth of film, beyond Michael Faraday's experiments with electro-magnetism, beyond Joseph Baptiste Fourier's invention of discrete cosine and wavelet transforms, back to al-Kwarizimi’s invention of the concept of the algorithm in the ninth century (dependent as it was on the Hindu numbering system and it's invention of the concept of '0' prior to the Christian era). We are interested in how innovations in technology, art and culture affect the production, content, politics and understandings of the value and meaning of moving images to the human species.
