Book launch: A Thousand Eyes: Media Technology, Law & Aesthetics
Dec 2 | 7- 10PM | Charles H. Scott Gallery @ Emilly Carr | Free
Since the early 20th century, contemporary art and art theory have creatively challenged the status of representation. During that time, the court of law has come to rely on a variety of new representational modes and technologies. What questions of representation, judgment and justice cross the border between art and the law? Through the contribution of renowned artists and scholars, this anthology explores how the aesthetics of new media technology and its spatial implementations affect the judicial system in relation to fundamental concepts such as truth and representation.
