From Hong Kong to the Hungarian Pavilion, Venice Biennale 2019, Waliczky revisits technologies in a non-linear history of the moving image.
This project revolves around the possibilities of visual perception and how they can be captured and depicted. It refers to the foremost 23 Imaginary Cameras Waliczky began designing in 2016. The optical devices operate with analogue mechanisms and draw attention to the cultural and technical determinedness of visual perception and depiction. Tamas Waliczky received the Prix Ars Electronica Golden Nica, 1989.
