Report from Computer Art Congress 5

Bonjour de Paris! I’m writing today quite early in the morning before I head out to Charles de Gaulle and return home. In my short stay I’ve had difficulty sleeping, so I thought I might make use of some of that time while everything is still relatively fresh in my head.

Call For Papers SECAC: Vision Machines and Pre-Cinematic Optical Devices: Panoramas, Stereoscopes and Places of Otherness

Viewers experienced a form of virtual travel, through the act of seeing panorama in a public place or a stereoscope in their living room. Some argue that these devices contributed to a new kind of observer in the 1840s (Crary), or that they are responsible for the rupture of…
