The Structure of TV Pictures: The Forces That Operate Within the TV Screen.
Metallinos, Nikos
Little research has been conducted into the structure of television images. This structure merits examination in terms of its perceptual psychology, composition (light, color, form, placement, sound, and editing), and the aesthetics of motio Field forces theory asserts that there are differences between a real scenario and its representation on television and that these differences should be analyzed in terms of orientation, aspect ratio, direction of movement, symmetry, proportion, and balance. Several key questions of perception demand further research: (1) placement within the television field; (2) boundaries of the screen; and (3) the contrast between the subject and its background. The results of future research could profoundly affect techniques in lighting, staging, and space manipulation. (EMH)
