8 Megapixel City
8 Megapixel City is an extension of Houston Noir and The Poetics of Space. It is an exploration of the urban landscape at night, but was shot with a modified 8 megapixel cellphone camera. It is not only a meditation on the urban experience in the digital world--through cellphones, tablets and computers--but explores digital archiving methods in documenting places. If all buildings are destroyed and people are displaced in the future, the only remnants of the city will be housed in hard drives and hosted in social media platforms. Just as the photographs of Warsaw before World War II show a physically different city than the Warsaw today, the images in this project will show one of the many reincarnations of an ever-evolving cityscape.
