The British Journal of Photography has launched an exhibition in space. It is a 45 minute screen based exhibition beamed from above the earth.
From their website, about the exhibition.
Drawn from Portrait of Humanity, a movement seeking to prove there is more that unites us than sets us apart, the exhibited images showcase the many faces of communities across the world, celebrating humanity in its countless variations.
While the global pandemic forces museums and galleries to remain closed, the film should remind us of our universal bonds, despite being forced apart, with vivid images slowly scrolling across a framed-screen, exhibited against the backdrop of our collective home below.
Flickr river is a site that taps into the flickr api and offers some interesting feedback. It created a randomly generated series of my “most interesting” pictures. Most interesting is generated by an algorithm. As an algorithm it has little to do with the visual quality of the images and may draw on other aspects of my activity across the flickr website.
Flickr river has been around as long as flickr itself and over the years the developer has added interesting features.
This Yale website has archived an exhibition about printing.
From the site. https://printedpicture.artgallery.yale.edu/
This site explores an exhibition on the history of the printing of pictures held at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, in 2008-09. This exhibition and the book that it accompanied traced the dominant technologies used for printing pictures throughout the modern era. Richard Benson, who wrote the book and co-curated the exhibition, was videotaped for approximately eight hours in the Museum galleries. This site gives access to that entire talk with additional images and details, allowing visitors to the site to draw their own path through its contents.
