Polyphonic Screens: Chris Marker and Embodied Memory
Always preserved in a genre are undying elements of the archaic. True, these archaic elements are preserved in it only thanks to their constant renewal, which is to say, their contemporization. A genre is always the same and yet not the same, always old and new simultaneously… A genre lives in the present, but always remembers its past, its beginning. – Mikhail Bakhtin191
Of course, this work in no way constitutes an autobiography, and I’ve permitted myself to drift in all directions. Nonetheless, if you’re going to work on memory, you might as well use the one you’ve always got on you. – Chris Marker192
