SUMMARY : My research paper will explore the evolving relationship between the organic body and aging technology-driven fine art media. Specifically exploring the changing contemporary art usages of print-media, analogue photography, film and the virtual image, as they commercially supersede one another, will lead to a re-think of the nature of inter-disciplinary or collaborative practices. Each of the above mentioned media have at times moved from slick modernity, to unsophisticated simplicity, to being considered nostalgic, and importantly, tactile antiquities. Specific examples of these 'end of days' haptic qualities include the embossed and raised ink surfaces in prints, the depth of field in analogue photography, and the grain on film stock. These haptic qualities both evince a relationship to the body and to the embodied object. These haptic, and arguably nostalgic, qualities are often recreated in digital and virtual imagery, as exampled by Instagram, and other methods.  [Go to the full record in the library's catalogue]
