Automated Photography is a research project initiated within the Master in Photography of the ECAL/Ecole cantonale d’art de Lausanne. Following on from Augmented Photography (2016/17), it aims to question the mutability of the digital photographic image, transformed both in its physical materiality and in its virtual expression through the automation of capture systems, omnipresent in contemporary visual production. The project aims to critically examine this paradigm shift in the process of photographic creation, from photographic capture in the strict sense to appropriation, automated and computational practices, which respond to a conception of space less and less built on the equivalence between the human eye and the machine.
An exhibition, a book and a symposium will be presented during Paris Photo 2021 at the Espace Commines. The window of the CCS bookstore will be occupied on this occasion.
