Summary

 

The conference aims to investigate how we might understand and theorise space in relation to the digital image. Building on the recent 'sensory turn' in visual scholarship, the meanings, materialities and values of the image suggested through the interconnectedness of visual and other sensorial relations have revived discussion of the image's transcription of space. Part of this discussion concerns a shift in thinking about visual production and consumption, particularly from mobile media, as happening in movement. At the same time, this shift coincides with the development of digital imaging technologies as digital photography and cinema facilitate new experiences and consumption in movement, in the process encouraging new ways of understanding space and images. The objective of this conference is to bring together scholars in the fields of digital media, architecture, anthropology, design, visual studies, cultural studies, game studies, and any others who are interested in space and digital media to expand on what has so far largely been a 'visual discourse' and to facilitate a dialogue from diverse perspectives about questions of space, movement, the sensorial and the digital.
