Jon Inge Faldalen is Head of Screen Cultures, a permanent lecturer and a PhD candidate in the Department of Media and Communication at the Faculty of Humanities, University of Oslo, Norway, where he teaches courses in film history, film theory, alternative film, and audiovisual aesthetics. His doctoral dissertation, titled “THE STILLMOVING” (2019), examines the aesthetics of stillness in moving images through conceptualizing and theory-building analyses of works of among others the Lumières and James Benning. Faldalen’s long-standing research prism is what he calls the still Einstellung (i.e., a fixed frame or static camera shot).
