Christopher Trice’s work draws from a background in philosophy, music production and sound design. He is currently completing a video series entitled Still Life and is developing a short film tentatively titled Zeno’s Image Paradox. Beyond this film work, he is currently researching the Soviet montage theories of Sergei Eisenstein and Dziga Vertov and their connection to the establishment of the notion of post-production. He has written on the evocation of Emmanuel Levinas in Jean-Luc Godard’s Notre Musique and an analysis of modern film scores for Vertov’s Man with a Movie Camera. Research for future work currently centres on Henri Bergson’s concept of the memory-image as a model for approaching Godard’s reclamation of montage in Histoire(s) du cinema.

His research looks at the geniuses behind our gadgets, using the culture and politics of hacking to understand things like expertise, amateurism, pleasure, beauty, and disability. He is interested in the borders between communication and the history of science/technology and his methods are accordingly porous between humanistic and social scientific methods.
