JOURNAL PUBLICATION::: The Scientific Instrument and the Camera: Poetic and Radical Documentary and the invisibility of contemporary technology

holt journal - Issue 2 - Situations (online)
Publication Date: February 2024

"By considering the scientific laboratory with regards to the relatively banal electronic components that are so undecipherable in photographs, the symbolic nature of scientific instruments and inquiry can be made apparent via: (1) the repeated notion that human knowledge is indeed heavily codified and increasingly intangible (dare I say, inhuman), and (2) such physical spaces represent the ever “black-boxing” of knowledge construction within culture.."

SYMPOSIUM::: Documentary Futures

Location: University of South Wales
Dates: June 01, 2023 - 10:00 - 16:45 [ONLINE]

A Human Laboratory and the Radical Image, [Speculative Blindspots]

"In the second edition of the Documentary Futures international symposium, we address the state of the image and the rapidly altering landscape of photographic practice in the wake of the explosion and commercialisation of Artificial Intelligence. We explore what role artists, theorists and documentarians can assume within or against the architecture of machine learning at this critical juncture in human-machine development whilst exploring the implications of big data on photography and our shifting relationship to reality as affected by technical imagery.

The second aspect and panel of the symposium will seek to understand how we use documentary's own shortcomings and blind spots in a world where fact rather than truth is debated. We discuss what methods are used by practitioners and researchers to embrace the faults, power dynamics and fictions inherent in their medium(s). In doing so we can look to engage in documentary's speculative potential and function in imagining hopeful futures."
