Gallery l'elac, Renens [map]

An increasing number of images are produced autonomously by machines for machines with a gradual exclusion of any human intervention. "Automated Photography" is a research project developed by the Master Photography at ECAL that addresses this situation by examining image production and distribution technologies, such as machine learning, drones CGI, augmented reality and photogrammetry. After Paris Photo, the Gallery l'elac is pleased to host an immersive audiovisual exhibition, accompanied by a conference and a book, presenting critical views and a selection of projects that explore the aesthetic and conceptual potential of automated photography.

CONFERENCE
Constant Dullaart, conceptual artist & curator, Berlin & Amsterdam
Wednesday 30 March at 6pm, ECAL

The work of Dutch artist Constant Dullaart deals with the broad cultural and social effects of communication technologies and image processing. He works mainly with the Internet as another space for presentation and deformation. His approach, often political, elaborates a critique of the control that globalised systems have over our perception of the world and the way we passively adopt their language. His artistic practice includes websites, web-based performances, NFTs, digital prints, YouTube videos and domain name redesigns.
