Content description

The experience of indirection
This workshop discusses the category experience in relation to the imaging technologies of prints and printing. A print, whether analogue or digital, merges the self-generative qualities of technology with the recording of visual information, synthesizing a multitude of origins and objectives. Reflections on this synthetic quality of prints and printing leads to questions of how imaging technologies affect experience and processes of self-formation, involving discussions of epistemology, automatism, neurology and aesthetics in a historical perspective. The workshop will be a combination of lectures/discussions and presentations of art work + a study trip to Le cabinet d’arts graphiques at the Musée d'art et d’histoire. For the presentations students are encouraged to bring and present digital print material, or projects, of their own.
