Calculating Images. Representation by Algorithm in Science and Art

Organizer: Sven Spieker. Calculating Images. This international conference (held at UCSB March 4-5, 2005) investigated the digital image at the interstice of art and the sciences. Since the beginning of the 1990s, when researchers focused on digital photography, the digital image has not found the attention it deserves. We therefore want to begin with a series of basic questions that place the digital image in the context of other digital and non-digital imaging technologies.
