Aesthetic Experiences of the Technical and Invisual in Online Images

My research investigates how the tension between the representational (form and content) and the operational (what images do) is experienced or apprehended in networked images.

I’m looking specifically at the smartphone home screen, digitised oil paintings, AI generated images as well as visualisations and biometric images. What type of aesthetic relation to the invisual is accessible to me as a spectator, viewer or user of images rendered on my personal screens? Placed within the interdisciplinary field of media aesthetics, my research draws on methods and theories from aesthetics, media studies, image studies, art history, media philosophy, phenomenology and critical theory.
