Event details

World renowned artist and scholar Victor Burgin is paying a visit to Winchester Centre for Global Futures in Art Design & Media at WSA on Friday 4 May 2012, at 3pm. He will give a public lecture entitled 'A Perspective on Digital Light'.

A Perspective on Digital Light

Victor Burgin’s perspective on "digital light" is that of someone who trained as a painter, who later became a photographer, then a video maker, and who now works with virtual cameras in computer generated space. He shall be remarking upon what he sees as the currently evolving nature of the camera and the camera image in the environment of electronic computation. As Victor situates his art practice not only in relation to its genealogy but also by reference to the flux of images in contemporary life, he will begin with some observations about the general image environment of the "mass media" before he talks about the specificity of his own practice within this context.

Speaker information

Professor Ryan Bishop,co-director of the Winchester Centre for Global Futures in Art Design & Media will convene the talk.
