Picturing the Past: Technology as a Tool to Capture and View Images

Computing Commons Gallery, Arizona State University. Curated exhibition of original photographs, cameras, and ephemera with digital enlargements, slide video and computergraphic projection. Included images from daguerreotypes and cased images, to cartes de visites, mounted photographs and real photographic postcards from my collection.

The exhibition explores the interaction between historic photographs and the technologies used to reproduce and access them. The exhibit has two components. The first provides examples of traditional photography and historic processes and imagery. The second addresses technologies used to store and retrieve such images, including video disc and CD-ROM, and on-line access to historical collections such as American Memory and the Northern Arizona University digital imaging project.
