Suspended - Re-Thinking Photographic Archives in the Infographic Age

320

Published on

From its first days the photographic medium opened up a new world for technology and art, offering a new way to think (and see) time. In this presentation I will overview the connection between art, technology, entertainment and power starting from Eadward Muybridge's experiments in motion, contemplating about W. G. Sebald's employment of archival material, visiting Ridley Scott's Blade Runner's voice interface, glancing at glitches and artistic reactions to Google's attempts to photograph and map the world. We shall conclude with ZZZ Base archive of digital media and their trial and error methodologies.
