Imaginary Cameras. The mapping of human vision has been a recurring theme in the work of the internationally acclaimed new media artist Tamás Waliczky. Imaginary Cameras focuses on how the invention of new picture recording devices has influenced our ways of seeing, or even more importantly, how the worldviews of their inventors often predetermined the mechanisms of the apparatus and the character of the images the device can create. Waliczky’s twenty-three precisely constructed fantasy machines (cameras, projectors, viewers) reveal alternative renderings of reality through analogue mechanisms, while at the same time dissolving the opposition between seeing and knowing, computer vision and human vision.
