DERC launches the new book 'Refiguring Techniques in Digital Visual Research' at the Brunswick Street Bookstore.
Following on from the public symposium held in 2016, this book interrogates how new digital-visual techniques and technologies are being used in emergent configurations of research and intervention. It discusses technological change and technological possibility; theoretical shifts toward processual paradigms; and a respectful ethics of responsibility. The contributors explore how new and evolving digital-visual technologies and techniques have been utilised in the development of research, and reflect on how such theory and practice might advance what is "knowable" in a world of smartphones, drones, and 360-degree cameras.
