"Photographic Digital Sublime: An Empirical Study of Its Medium, Style, Aesthetics, and Knowledge"

Saturday, March 06 - 10:00AM to 10:45AM
Salon A

The digital sublime refers to digital-composite photography
that requires a new method of production and that renders a
matchless look. Based on nine artists' intentions, meaning, and
worldviews behind their production of the digital sublime, this
research has three major findings. First, the digital sublime is
a new medium with attributes of photography, painting, and
cinema. Second, in terms of the styles and knowledge this new
medium creates, however, it does not promote a new aesthetics,
but re-introduces and revises past artistic movements, such as
realism, romanticism, and surrealism. Last, the digital sublime is
not necessarily postmodernist.
