Photovideo: Photography In The Age Of The Computer
1 November - 7 December 1991
Featuring Susan Boyce, Susan Hardy, Brian Harris, Graham Howard, Pedro Meyer, Clinton Osbourne, Esther Parada, Philip Benson & David Perret, Keith Piper, Simon Robertshaw & Kativa Sharma
The arrival of the video-still camera, which records images electronically onto magnetic disk and has no need for conventional film or chemical processing, heralds a major shift in the development of photography. Images, once encoded, can be played back via television, or transmitted down telecommunications networks; they can be enhanced, edited and altered without visible trace. This exhibition poses the question: Is this the end of photography as we know it, or merely the next chapter?'
Featuring work by twelve photographers and video-makers from Britain and abroad; they utilize sound, time and many facets of computer information media, including new developments in processing and printing.
In collaboration with Impressions Gallery, York.
