Final eveluation of project 3.
Overall I have really enjoyed this project, it was a chance for me to explore a medium that was completely new to me. Film photography, specifically medium format, and the lomography aesthetic have very truthful messages of the need for both the “old” and the “new”. It was expected that digital photography would wipe out film photography, however in recent years we have seen a resurgence of film. I believe the old and the new forms of photography compliment one another, instead of destroying each other they form a relationship that makes both stronger. The same can be said for my remedeation technique of ”Stereography” or the art of making 3-D images. Even though the technology has greatly advanced in 3-D imaging there is still examples of the techniques used when stereograms first became popular in the late 18th century. Having both the old and the new makes both experiences stronger as the advantages of one cover the disadvantages of the other and visa versa. My images and the method of their presentation in the form of a classic style stereoscope as well as state of the art 3-D Stereo-environment display show the importance of this relationship between the old and the new and is evidence that we need both forms. Perhaps the most important thing this project has taught me is that to completely eliminate the old would be a great loss to the new.
