Moving image technologies have many-folded influence on our perception and the artist´s tools are updated constantly. What kind of decisions have to be made when choosing the tools of artistic expression, i.e. choosing the lens for a particular kind of image, installing the audiovisual work in the gallery space or showing it as a part of performance?
The shift from analogical to digital technology has increased the automatic properties of tools. Is it just a good thing? The seminar is organised together with The Finnish Academy of Fine Arts.
Present at the seminar:
Jorma Saarikko, contemporary pioneer of audiovisual installation / CEO of Pro AV Saarikko Oy
Johanna Ketola, visual artist, photographer
Britt Kootstra, visual artist / Filmverkstaden
