Abstract

Through the exploration of a hybrid space between artist and archaeological production, this article discusses the implications of peripatetic video, a form of located media, as a means of moving beyond the limits of conventional representation. While critical of archaeological dealings with issues of bodily experience and place, the article suggests an alternative is to be found in the work of media artist Janet Cardiff. Building on Cardiff's art, media are treated as modes of engagement for dealing with the articulation of bodily experience and place. This article works towards a notion of mediation through which qualities of the material world, normally left behind by traditional forms of documentation, are brought forth. To this end, it details the effectiveness of peripatetic video in dealing with material presence and bodily experience at four sites of cultural and archaeological significance in Crete, Greece.
