Content

This unit will examine what is ‘behind the screen’; the history, contemporary use, techniques and
constructs of the digitally mediated image in a convergent new media context. Advanced camera craft and options for RAW file capture will be introduced enabling sophisticated image processing and fine printing techniques. Students will conduct some activities through the construction of an online identity in experiments with the uncanny and with representation. Ethical, social and political implications of digital imaging will be examined.
