How do we see?

How do we ‘pay attention’ visually?

Why do we have two eyes?

What is camera vision?

Here you will discover, and be invited to participate in,  conjecture and experimentation around the idea that ‘camera-vision’ is analogous with the vision of the human eye. Clearly they are different; one is conscious, the other merely a physical phenomenon. Yet there are similarities useful enough for the creation of imagery that is about vision, and about attention.

  1. Dear James

    We are hosting a conference on effective visualisation in late November at the Australian National University. This is the second conference on this theme – the first was held at the University of Newcastle two years ago.

    Judy-anne Osborn suggested I contact you to let you know about the
    conference. I would be delighted if you could pass the word about this – we hope to reach a broad community of interested people.

    If you are interested I would happy to supply eye-catching posters!

    Regards Louisa

    New Directions in Fractal Geometry conference: a unique opportunity!

    PS I tried to email you at Deakin but it bounced


  2. Hello James: Thought you should note the death of Jack Wilkins on Easter Sunday. He was the last surviving member of the group of experimental photographers whose work was selected for the NGV’s “Frontiers” exhibit in 1973. Here’s something from the National Association of the Visual Arts:

    Known for his photographs and presence in the Warrnambool art community since the 1970s, Warrnambool’s painter, photographer, news cameraman and retired visual arts lecturer John ‘Jack’ Wilkins recently lost his battle to prostate cancer aged 71. Initially studying painting at RMIT a bout of ill health in his third year sent him back to Warrnambool. Thereafter he worked with his professional photographer father Alex Wilkins in the Wilkins Photographic Studio on Leibig Street where his photographic career began.

    In a tribute, Richard Phillips said Wilkins’ death was “a deeply sad occasion” and marked the passing of a “warm and wonderful man and a uniquely inventive artist and teacher. Jack was one of a handful pioneering figures, who in the early 1970s challenged the existing conventions about photographic art in Australia. Photographic galleries were all but non-existent at that time.” His work was included in the National Gallery of Victoria’s Frontiers exhibition in 1973. This abstract photography exhibition which was the first of its kind in Australian history was also exhibited in Japan, the Philippines, Thailand, Singapore and Malaysia.
