Perceptions of Practice: Photography


Perceptions of Practice: Photography is a series of workshops that set out to investigate what constitutes photographic practice today. The series promotes enquiry into contemporary photographic practice and its associated disciplines through placing presentations and discussions on established concepts of photographic tradition and the moving image alongside those arising from digital developments, such as the virtual camera, information clouds, network technology and the cultural consequences of photography as hyperobject.

geography of objects

25 May, 2011

The phrase ‘geography of objects’  is from Graham Harman’s Tool-Being.

‘At each moment, the world is a geography of objects, whether these objects are made of the latest plastics or have been around since the dawn of time’.
