Project Genre: Interactive Photobooth Installation
Project Description: Light Lines is an interactive installation challenging the etymology of photography. Since Sir John Herschel and Hércules Florence coined the term “photography” in the 21st century, we have accepted its definition as “drawing with light”. However, since the advent of digital photography, the traditional chemical process of creating a photograph with light and silver has been overtaken by the digital process that operates on numbers and data. Hence, Light Lines seeks to visually represent this data, challenging the traditional understanding of a photograph.
