Leslie Thornton joined EAI for an evening exploring the role of photography in her moving image work. Thornton's rigorously experimental film and video work is an investigation into the production of meaning through media. For Thornton, form and content are equal and inseparable.

At EAI, Thornton screened rarely-seen film and video works in which she has investigated the porous boundaries between the still and the moving image. She spoke about the impact and influence of photographic concepts and techniques on her media practice. In addition, Thornton's presentation included a special performance in which the artist reduced a sheet of stills from Adynata into individual photographs that were given to the audience.
