Exploring the relation between sensation and thought through the prisms of dance,cinema, art, and new media, Manning argues for the intensity of movement. From this idea ofintensity--the incipiency at the heart of movement--Manning develops the concept of preacceleration,which makes palpable how movement creates relational intervals out of which displacements take form.Discussing her theory of incipient movement in terms of dance and relational movement, Manningdescribes choreographic practices that work to develop with a body in movement rather than simplystabilizing that body into patterns of displacement.

She examines the movement-images of LeniRiefenstahl, Étienne-Jules Marey, and Norman McLaren (drawing on Bergsons idea of duration), andexplores the dot-paintings of contemporary Australian Aboriginal artists. Turning to language,Manning proposes a theory of prearticulation claiming that languages affective force depends on aconcept of thought in motion. Relationscapes takes a Whiteheadianperspective, recognizing Whiteheads importance and his influence on process philosophers ofthe late twentieth century--Deleuze and Guattari in particular.

It will be of special interest toscholars in new media, philosophy, dance studies, film theory, and art history.
