Acetic Image: Technologies of Disavowal

Guy Edmonds, Udo Hudelmaier, Jane Hutchinson, Abigail Jackson, Nick Peres

This seminar will examine the contractual relationship between technologies that are claimed to represent the world or aspects of it and our cognitive experience of the same things. In particular it will discuss the conceptual enigma of 360 capture and projection in this context and the associated problems of simulation and fidelity.

The seminar will include short demonstrations of various media techniques that are intended to amplify fidelity and to consider the contract between what is known and what is shown that these devices draw up with the world.
