2024S, Vorlesung und Übungen (VU), 2.0 ECTS, 2.0 semester hours, course number S04560

Description

Every image needs a body, a carrier, to circulate. We analyze which photographic and post-photographic carriers are available and which can be suitable for your own project. This can range from dealing with photographs on a screen to digital pigment printing on paper.  Pigment printing, hand-laminating technology and the development of in-house displays for photography are being tested in practice. Composite materials, papers, adhesives and forms of collage (partial lamination, lay-up, etc.) will be presented. We look at current and historical techniques of image creation using original works from the Albertina photo collection. For digital and virtual images, displays and applications (programs) of photographic image processing are required, which are already equipped with AI-generated functions as standard. In order to recognize them and to learn more about machines and AI  Andrea "Jackie" Klaura (Coding Lab) visits us for a guest lecture. The projects from the Central Artistic Subject can be worked on in this course concerning on their display and mediation.
