Live on Zoom
In this masterclass, Milo Keller, head of photography at ECAL/University of Art and Design Lausanne, will present the technologies that are radically changing the way we interact socially, economically and politically with photographic images.
Starting from Augmented Photography, the research project he led, the focus of the class will be on the materialization and dematerialization of the image and new forms of fabrication, aesthetics and diffusion related to photogrammetry, computer-generated imagery and artificial intelligence. While highlighting elements of continuity and rupture with the history of photography and the dizzying consequences of its digitalization, Keller will propose examples from the cultural industry and contemporary art that allow us to better understand the visual network composed of humans and machines in which we are all immersed today.
