Mutant Media gathers together a selection of John Conomos’ essays across the years, tracking the trajectory of his cinephilia since the 1960s, his ongoing interests in film criticism and theory, as well as his deep involvement in video art and new media since the 1980s. On one hand a major contribution to the realm of moving image and new media theory, Mutant Media is also a kind of autobiography of someone whose eclectic life as an artist, writer and educator centers around cinema’s grand, unpredictable adventure spanning three centuries.
