Photography’s unique relationship with time, the idea of fixing an image in time has been altered with the invasion of digital technology. How revolutionary is the idea of the digital? What essentially differentiates the idea of a stilled moment in time with its (digital) potentiality to reverberate and pulsate within the same frame? From the capturing to the processing and printing, images are subjected to open-ended alterity. Discussing this through the work of Belgian artist David Claerbout and with reference to Simondon’s L’individu et sa genese physico-biologique and Agamben’s What is an apparatus the notion of diffracted and shimmering time will be explored, one that is conditioned and at the same time, conditions the notion of subjectivity.
