In a programme presented by DECK, The Unstable Image is a one–day symposium that delves into the realm of post-photography and our evolving relationship with images in an increasingly mediated world. The symposium will focus on artistic practices and discourses engaged with thinking about photo manipulation through technology and how such new technologies shape our relationship with images.
Curated by independent curator and arts writer, Clara Che Wei Peh, as part of DECK Associate Creative Programme, The Unstable Image will convene 14 different artists and academics from diverse backgrounds to ruminate over how such new technologies (like Text-to-Image generators, Generative Adversarial Network) have destabilised the photographic image. How can we trust and read images in an epoch where everything could be manipulated and fabricated? What is the role of photography when images are created through code and software, rather than light and lens?
