the image in the machine

Barrie had the pleasure of going to the Liverpool School of Art & Design at the end of September. He had a paper accepted for the Seventh International Conference on The Image.

His parallel session (Learning Images) included wonderful talks on Virtual Illumination by Alexander Nevill, from the Centre for Moving Image Research, University of West England – Quite brilliant and well worth booking him for a talk if you’ve got some budget to spare – and Jim Hamlyn’s; The Truth About Images, which was another, very thought provoking high point which asked to what extent are photographs ‘truth dependent’.

Barrie spoke about portraiture and the typewriter. Apparently this is quite a niche subject, judging by the fact one of the audience asked, ‘Is that even a thing?’

He’s even managed to meet the deadline for submitting the paper to the Journal of the Image. So, it might even end up in print.
