    In short, according to Bolter and Grusin, "No medium today, and certainly no single media event, seems to do its cultural work in isolation from other media" In my efforts to delineate the transformations that the entertainment industry has undergone in light of economic and technological shifts, I have reconsidered the research of the academics mentioned above from alternate angles, considering and elaborating on their arguments from the perspective of the neo-baroque. As was the case with the seventeenth-century baroque, the current expression of the neo-baroque has literally emerged as a result of systemic and cultural transformations, which are the result of the rise of conglomeration, multimedia interests, and new digital technology. Not only does the classical still persist, but it is also integrated into alternate modes of media discourse. Once upon a time there was a film called Jurassic Park Spielbergand on its release, audiences went to cinemas by the millions to be entertained by the magic that had to offer. As with the Latin American neobaroque, particular features of a baroque poetics emerged minimal or lack of concern with plot development and a preference for a multiple and fragmented structure that recalls the form of a labyrinth; open rather than closed form; a complexity and layering evident, for example, in the merging of genres and literary forms such as poetry and the novel; a world in which dream and reality are indistinguishable; a view of the illusory nature of the world-a world as theater; a virtuosity revealed through stylistic flourish and allusion; and a sell-reflexivity that requires active audience engagement Overesch

    Highlighting a crisis in traditional forms of symptomatic interpretation, the multilinear nature of game spaces suggests that our modes of interpretation need to reflect an equally neo-baroque multiplicity. The movement that describes these changes is one concerned with the traversal of boundaries. The Massacre of the Innocents by Peter Paul Rubens: Chiaroscuro refers to the interplay between light and dark and is a technique often used in paintings of dimly lit scenes to produce a very high-contrast, dramatic atmosphere. In High Concept: Movies and Marketing in Hollywooda highly significant contribution to the analysis of the dominant industrial and formal practices of contemporary Hollywood cinema, Justin Wyatt stresses the fundamental relationship that exists in Hollywood between "economics and aesthetics. And yes, once upon yet another time, there was a land called "Jurassic Park," but this was no film or computer space.

    Mexico City: Ediciones Era, A specifically neo-baroque poetics embedded within the postmodern is my primary point of reference. Yet the baroque and neo-baroque differ in a significant way. Characteristics The Baroque style is characterized by exaggerated motion and clear detail used to produce drama, exuberance, and grandeur in sculpture, painting, architecture, literature, dance, and music.

Its inherently baroque nature has, however, revealed itself especially during periods of technological advancement: during the pre period that ushered in the invention of the cinematic apparatus; briefly during the s, when experiments with wide-screen technology were conducted but the format failed to become standardized; during the s, which ushered in a more successful version of neobaroque audiovisuality by showcasing new wide-screen and surround-sound technology through the epic and musical genres; and finally, during our own times, which have provided a more conducive climate for the stabilization of the neo-baroque.
