    Dziga Vertov devotes little attention to women in his writings about the "kino-eye." He assigns the kino-eye several related meanings. It denotes a type of film-making: "the union of science with newsreel to further the battle for the communist decoding of the world" (Kino-Eye 41-2). It signifies the camera's vision: "more perfect than the human eye for fathoming the chaos of those visual phenomena which evoke spatial dimension" ("Film" 52).

    Values are a direct result of context, thus a change in context leads to a development and alteration in values. Some values are timeless, however, just as those depicted in Mary Shelley’s 1818 novel Frankenstein and Ridley Scott’s 1982 film Blade Runner (Director’s Cut). These didactic texts are therefore still applicable to today’s society, as the moral lessons may be related to current social values. Shelley’s Frankenstein and Scott’s Blade Runner present similar values, however they are explored in a different manner due to the contexts of their composers. Mary S

    The ancient art of tattooing has recently enjoyed a resurgence in popularity in North America. Prevalence rates for tattoos are difficult to assess but have been estimated at 10%-20% of men and 7% of women with tattoos in the United States (Copes &Forsyth, 1998). Estimates are not yet available in Canada, however, there is no reason to suspect that Canadian rates would be markedly different.3 Historically, although men with tattoos have experienced negative judgments and reactions (Gray, 1994; Rubin, 1988), they have arguably received greater social acceptance than have women with tattoos (
