Photography Futures
Sketches on the potential future of the photograph

TEM utilise a wide range of imaging and environmental scanning technologies in the work we create, so we are constantly dealing with image data, and how we can represent that data. We've begun to think of all these technologies as just evolutions of the original silver salt cameras, just different ways of sampling the surrounding physical environment. This began speculations on how the traditional 2D photographic image could evolve to make use of these new data sources.
When you think of the photons hitting a sensor, the only data the sensor gets is wavelengh frequency and amplitude, colour and brightness. How could we make creative use of new data, such as multiple photon directions, or new interpretations of the data through algorithmic machine learning, to create new types of photograph.
