Imag(in)ing 2012 light

After a week thinking about JPEG, time to take a protocol turtle for a walk. A walk in the liminal spaces around 2012 imaging the photons that jumped backwards and forwards across the fence, right under the gaze of the security cameras. Using my digital pinhole camera I scooped up the photons and let the apparatus encode the resultant light-as-data as RAW-encoded and JPEG-encoded files on my camera memory card and then onto Flickr.

As I discuss here, I wanted to avoid representation yet somehow remain within the photographic, hence my choice to photograph the light. Of course this meant I was also photographing material objects but as OOPs tells us, objects are always connected within other objects. My concern was using JPEG and non-JPEG protocols, imaging and imagining the encoding of light-as-data.
