Abstract:There has been always an interest from artists in the study of optical phenomena beyond the framework of classical media, such as film and video, considering the aesthetic possibilities of filmmaking. The expanded concept of media art makes the boundaries of the transmission of the image itself obsolete and provides another means of expression and interpretation in the artistic process, for example, in media installation art. The invention and search by the viewer of spatial and temporal contexts within an organism undergoing transformation acquires the status of the creative process, and is configured as the exhibition itself. This shift completely reconfigures the role of the spectator, developing his own spectacle in his wandering throughout the installations of the works of art. We focus on case studies of artists who explore filmic languages in their work, like Pierre Huyghe and Mark Lewis. This paper investigates the recreated installations by artist Pierre Huyghe that make up the subject and the viewer in them and become the most important of his work. And to establish an approach to the work of artist Mark Lewis to explore the contexts in which his work takes place within the contextual, the space and the social, and also the situational. This reflection and theoretical analysis is inserted into the research of the MA in arts management and production from the University of Murcia.
Keywords: Cinema, audiovisual Installation, contextual, temporality.
