Product Details


“One of those critical works packed with learning and insights that at the same time takes you on an exhilarating ride through its author’s imagination.”
—Marina Warner, Guardian

“A hugely ambitious mapping of the complex intertwinings of film, architecture, and the body. This adventurous book will be of interest to anyone concerned with what we might call ‘mobility studies’: the attempt to understand cultural performances not as the manifestation of fixed structures but as the expression of restless energies.”
—Stephen Greenblatt, Harvard University

“In this astonishingly provocative, captivating, tender, elegant, and passionate nonchronological, interdisciplinary book, Bruno connects splendidly a psychogeography of cultural life … She takes the readers through a poetico-scholarly and picturesque journey—a visual travelogue, based both on philosophical theories and erudite conjectures … Bruno writes like an expressionist painter, who deeply captures the invisible and the instantaneous.”

“In an exhilarating ride, the reader is transported across this vast hidden landscape to reach a whole new understanding of spatial experience.”
—Mark Wigley, Professor of Architecture, Columbia University

“The richness of Bruno’s take on the relation of motion and emotion … demonstrates its continuing relevance for current interdisciplinary visual cultural research.”
