Digital images can be transferred from one computer to the other in
real-time, they are available anytime and anywhere* - *they are
interconnective. Photos the existence of which is not yet founded on zeroes
and ones will be digitalized with the utmost probability. One click is
enough to (re)produce digital photos, to change their form of organisation,
to make them available to a large audience and last but not least to make
them readable for machines... The lecture series "About Public Actions and
Aesthetic Journeys - Photography and the Internet" deals with the ongoing
discourse about the impact of the Internet on digital forms of photography.
