  • Abstract (short paper)

    This paper addresses one fundamental question: How does the relation between image and vision change when machines are involved? We argue that with neurosciences and computer vision, the image as a stable visual entity no longer exists, but that autonomous (machinic) vision does not necessarily render human vision or imaging obsolete. Adopting a posthumanist point of view, we stress collaborative vision across species, and proposes to define the posthuman image, or ‘postimage’ as the gathering/exchanging of (visual) data between humans, animals, and, increasingly, autonomous machines.
