A survey of artists working with the latest technological innovations in photography, The Digital Eye offers a range of new ways to manipulate the medium.
From Joan Fontcuberta’s use of 10,000 tiny Google images to reconstruct Niépce’s first photograph to Mariko Mori’s cosmic vision of a floating princess surrounded by cyber-muses, Henry Art Gallery director Sylvia Wolf’s book takes us through the history of photography, ending in the electronic age with the illustrated works of some 60 experimental artists.
