Alan Warburton – RGBFAQ


RGBFAQ excavates these foundations, bringing forth a battery of forensic evidence that undermines our usual understanding of the computational image, supplying us instead with the far more unpredictable, colourful concept of the ‘exploded image’, a mode of image production that, as he demonstrates, originates in the tricky render economics of the early 2000s, but which has, like many new technologies, unexpected applications in surveillance, entertainment and behavioural sciences.

Part of: Reader Nr 4 im/possible images

The contributions gathered in this Reader continue questions and themes of the exhibition project im/possible images in essays, reflections, collections of material and manuals. In the idea of accompanying publishing, texts and visual material are made accessible in the series of L13 readers that are connected to the themes and questions of various projects from the program of Lothringer 13 Halle and open up further spaces for thought. The contributions will be made available both online and in print on site at the Lothringer 13 Halle and can be individually compiled by visitors.
