Coded Images

Computer Science in Photography


Digital switch has changed a lot in the field of technical picture creating. From optical-chemical basis picture taking has moved to a physical-mathematical one. Picture has become non-separable from algorithms. Digital picture is nothing else but visualization of data taken by the sensors. It can make an appearance in various forms but the most popular format is jpeg, that somewhat imitates the codes of traditional representation of photography. Encoding is the focal point of digital photography nowadays, because it determines the way information stored become picture. Throughout the works of the exhibition we would like to represent, show and introduce the modes, methods and the ways to get picture out of information with the help and contribution of artists and photographers having been making research on this matter for a long time now. We would ride along the borders of concept and theory of visual representation where the rules of mathematics and aesthetics are equally relevant.
