The Loops & Splices conference programme is now online! A full, downloadable copy is accessible here: Loops+Splices Programme.
In addition to three exciting panels, you’ll note that we have also included a lunchtime screening/discussion and post-conference art opening at the Adam Art Gallery on Victoria University’s Kelburn campus.
We are also excited to also announce the title of Ian Christie’s keynote, ‘Denying depth: uncovering the hidden history of 3D in photography and film.’ This talk centres around questions of stereoscopy’s social and cultural significance and asks: If stereoscopy has been a more significant and continuous presence in modern imaging media than is conventionally recognised, then why has it been consistently marginalised by photographic and film historians? After its huge popularity in the second half of the 19th century, there were expectations that stereo moving pictures would follow. Yet even after practical display systems emerged in the 1930s, resistance has continued, often fuelled by a mixture of economic and psycho-aesthetic justification. What’s the problem?
While the conference is free for both attendees and presenters, please remember to register through the conference website or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can plan accordingly.
We look forward to seeing you at Loops & Splices in three weeks!
