Paula Gortazar will be presenting her paper Plastic Borders: On the Photographic Frame and its Virtual Experience, at the next International Conference of Photography and Theory that will take place in Nicosia, Cyprus, between the 17th and the 19th of November.
The conference aims to address questions relevant to the ways in which emerging technologies, such as 360 photography, artificial intelligence, machine-made images, augmented reality, satellites, drones, etc. influence photographic practices and potentially expand contemporary visualities. Can such technologies “expand” or “limit” the photographic vision and frame? And if so, what are the socio-political, aesthetic, and ethical implications of the use of such technologies in relation to photographic practices? How do emerging technologies impact on our relationship with photographic images, and on the medium of photography in general?
