Una soluzione ontologica al paradosso del cortocircuito rappresentazionale nei film
If live-action fictions are photographic representations of theatrical representations, “collapsed seeing”, according to Robert Hopkins, is the experience of directly seeing in the films the narrated events, while overriding the theatrical representation. Collapsed seeing opens the door to a paradox: on the one hand, we would experience live-action films as photographic records of narrated events, on the other hand, we know that it is impossible to access directly fictional events. The paradox can be solved if we consider these events as happening in an artefactual – and not simply a possible – world, with points of view as elements of its ontological structure.
