    Si­gune Hamann will pre­sent her work on rep­re­sen­ta­tion of move­ment, time and nar­ra­tive struc­ture through image ma­nip­u­la­tion with a focus on her process of cap­tur­ing the dy­nam­ics of urban en­vi­ron­ments in panoramic film-strips. Ex­am­ples in­clude ‘White­hall 9.12.2010’ show­ing at this year’s ISEA ex­hi­bi­tion.  Her work is hands-on image ma­nip­u­la­tion in­volv­ing the cap­ture of film-strips as a real or phys­i­cal process, a me­chan­i­cal one, but also sub­se­quently a pho­to­chem­i­cal and dig­i­tal trans­for­ma­tion.  The paper will ex­am­ine shifts of in­for­ma­tion and lay­er­ing, rep­e­ti­tion and blur­ring of im­ages as they hap­pen in the ini­tial me­chan­i­cal process and in the fol­low­ing dig­i­tal out­put. These kinds of dis­place­ments draw at­ten­tion to how we ex­pe­ri­ence im­ages, how we make sense of them, and how they re­late to our mem­o­ries.  She will demon­strate the de­ci­sions made by an artist in con­trol­ling the re­la­tion­ship be­tween the dig­i­tal and ana­logue through the process of mak­ing and show­ing work.
