Image projection and the cinematic have become more and more pervasive in contemporary art in recent years. In this dissertation Ernst addresses the manner in which artists have employed projections in their work and the image traditions that they relate to. She explores the notion of reality in projections, making a distinction between immersive or augmenting projections. The immersive screen space constitutes an imaginary realm, while reality exists around it. Augmenting projections take place in space: an image is projected onto a three-dimensional object. Ernst argues that augmenting projections are persuasive, not because they are materially real, but rather since they make visible what we could imagine as real.
