LIGHT MATTER symposium held at University of Technology Sydney 24 August 2019
The current democratisation of image-making, where everyone is a photographer, has renewed discussions on artistic authorship and intensified the creative possibilities of lens-based practice. Light Matter considers this contemporary dynamic and in their innovative approaches to process and materiality — analogue, digital, hybrid or camera-less — the artists in this exhibition affirm that centrality of ‘the author’ is definitely not dead.
