SOFTIMAGE: TOWARDS A NEW THEORY OF THE DIGITAL IMAGE. Ingrid Hoelzl and Remi Marie. Intellect, Bristol, 2015. Published in the U.S.A. by Intellect, University of Chicago Press. 158 pp. with 34 ills. 22 x 17 cm. ISBN 9781783205035 In English.
Publisher's description: With today's digital technology, the image is no longer a stable representation of the world, but a programmable view of a database that is updated in real time. It no longer functions as a political and iconic representation, but plays a vital role in synchronic data-to-data relationships. It is not only part of a program, but it contains its own operating code: the image is a program in itself. Softimage aims to account for that new reality, taking readers on a journey that gradually undoes our unthinking reliance on the apparent solidity of the photographic image and building in its place an original and timely theorization of the digital image in all its complexity, one that promises to spark debate within the evolving fields of image studies and software studies.
