I believe that one role of both installation art and film is mesmerization. It is utterly important to be able to be captured, your mind held by what you're encountering, by what's enveloping you. The SUmmer Blockbuster does this, far better than any piece of intimate art film, but nothing does it as well as installation art like the multi-projector works of Jennifer Steinkamp, whose work Madame Curie is utterlty mesmerizing, even when only viewed via a YouTube video.
