Overcoming Zeno’s Paradox: Using Long Exposure Technology to Capture a Deleuzo-Bergsonian Perspective of Movement in Qualitative Research

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This methodological paper considers how movement may be captured and expressed in qualitative data. Beginning with a history of movement as it has been represented in empirical studies, this paper posits that movement has been undertheorized in qualitative research (via video and photograph); theorizes movement under the Deleuzo-Bergsonian concept of duration; and wonders how movement as a kind of “dynamic unity” might be expressed as visual data. Using photographs collected from a troupe of fire manipulating circus performers, this study suggests the use of long exposure camera technology as one practical means of thinking about movement (as duration) in qualitative research.
