Drawing in the Media Stream

Drawing_in_the_Media_Stream, a hybrid media installation in collaboration with Tony Allard, negotiates the collision between traditional forms of perceptual drawing and machine vision. Drawing provides a way to offer more lasting personalized and collective memories of the short-term presence of media images. By way of Paul Virilio’s arguments put forth in The Vision Machine, we critique and disrupt the production and packaging of sanctioned images as the result of visionics, super-synthetic machine-generated vision, and present alternatives to the resultant loss of short and long-term visual memory.
