Transitional space and the cinema experience graphic An exploration of D.W. Winnicott's concepts of transitional objects, transitional phenomena and transitional space as they enhance a) historical understanding of the activity of cinemagoing as a cultural experience; and b) understanding of the organisation and rhetoric of space within the film frame. The latter has relevance for the study of the phenomenology and the metapsychology of cinema as well as for film analysis. Project for study leave, during 2005-2006, is 'Transitional objects and cultural experience, with particular reference to cinema'.
