The Artist, the Color Copier, and Digital Imaging.
Witte, Mary Stieglitz
The impact that color-copying technology and digital imaging have had on art, photography, and design are explored. Color copiers have provided new opportunities for direct and spontaneous image making an the potential for new transformations in art. The current generation of digital color copiers permits new directions in imaging, but the manipulations possible with digital images create ethical quandaries that are not yet fully realized. Digital imagery also diminishes the distinction between originals and multiples. Appropriation of an original is quick and effortless, and can be seen as either a concern or an opportunity. The wizardry of digital color copiers and related computer technologies is reminiscent of the magical quality attributed to photography in its early years. The potential for new constructs offered by digital imaging can be seen as both opportunity and concern. (Contains 5 references.) (SLD)
