It’s the day after the launch of our exhibition Digital Carousel in Hello Operator. Last night was very successful. A great number of people turned out for the event. Many thanks to all those who came. We hope you enjoyed the experience. Below are some photos of the installation. Next Monday we will upload photos of the launch and the animation. During the next fortnight we will be completing the documentary of the exhibition and finish writing our thesis. So stay tuned…

We’ve plastered the city with our lovely posters.
Hopefully we’ll have a nice mix of people attending our exhibition now.
Yesterday we spent the day in the library organising the order in which the slides would appear in the carousel and how they would correspond with the digital scene.
It was exhausting work but so satisfying in the end as it was clear we were all thinking along the same lines and everything came together neatly.
We hammered out a lot of other issues during the week so we’re really positive and excited heading into week 9.
The posters came back from the printers yesterday, we’re all delighted with how they turned out and will head out today to hang them around the city.
“Technically, traditional photography is a medium of memory, from the moment it is taken via processing to the final photograph. It always shows something which was present but is already past. It captures for the observer, among other things, fleeting eventful experiences in the form of a reproduction on a two-dimensional surface. The observer remains outside the scene and as such can only revive it through his imagination. Vice versa, since becoming mobile and liberating themselves from being hung on walls as illustrations and prints, images have become a possibility of observing something distanced in space and time, of being, of traveling somewhere else, without moving from where one is.”
