In Circulation is a dizzying portrait of Expanded Cinema by Gene Youngblood, a book widely acknowledged for its insights into technology’s impact on cinema, attempting to broaden and liberate the medium from tradition, conventions, and standardization. Currently the book is out of print. However, the text has been made available by its author for free online. Eschewing profit for proliferation of ideas, this emblematic gesture extends the author’s philosophy beyond cinema into other realms of digital media and distribution prevalent today. In Circulation celebrates the remediation of Youngblood’s text, combining digital scans and readers’ descriptions of this out-of-print book to construct an alluring simulacrum.
