Juhani Pallasmaa, The Architecture of Image: Existential Space in Cinema

He's one of the most interesting writers on space, architecture and film but also the dominance of the 'scopic' [meaning the visual and the eye] in visual culture, [another book ref here:  The Eyes of the Skin.]  This would be great for those of you who are researching set design and spatial concepts in film and media, but also refers back to painting, which is quite an exotic mix, but he successfully synthesises interdisciplinarity.  Please also note that the link takes you to a good synopsis of the book which is informative for your annotated bibliography.
