Join artist Austin Lee and scholar Jacob Gaboury, author of Image Objects: An Archaeology of Computer Graphics (MIT Press, 2021),  as they explore how computational imaging technologies alter our relationship not just to images, but also to our self-perception and the outer world.

The conversation will draw on Austin Lee’s artistic practice, which offers a fresh perspective on how human emotions can be expressed, imagined, and rendered via computer and his use of figures to manifest emotions such as pure happiness or melancholy. The program will be enriched by Jacob Gaboury's research and scholarship on the history of computer graphics, which offers a crucial lens for comprehending how the rendering process influences our understanding of the physical world.
