ON THE OCCASION OF THE PUBLICATION OF TRANSBORDEUR #3 PHOTOGRAPHY, HISTORY, SOCIETY, LE BAL PROPOSES A JEFF GUESS PERFORMANCE FOLLOWED BY A DISCUSSION WITH OLIVIER LUGON, ESTELLE BLASCHKE AND DAVIDE NERINI.
In the age of autonomous cars and connected refrigerators, creating intelligent machines would mean giving them a sense of sight. The latest issue of the journal Transbordeur, whose thematic dossier focuses on the history of the multiple links between photography and information technologies, shows how this dream of a vision shared with machines, which seems to us to stem from digital technology, has in fact already emerged in the past and has found other technical solutions over the years.
