Photographic Epistemologies - A PEPI Seminar 25 October 2019 at The Finnish Museum of Photography, Cable Factory (Helsinki).

Opening words by Professor Janne Seppänen from Tampere University, who is the Principal Investigator of the consortium.

Academy of Finland research project Post-Digital Epistemologies of the Photographic Image (PEPI) organises a seminar on Photographic Epistemologies at the Finnish Museum of Photography. PEPI (2019–2022) combines psychology, visual studies and artistic research. The project studies photographic epistemologies in post-digital condition where the photograph has become a dynamic data object with three faces: the visible surface facing the viewer, the interface suggesting various connections, and the invisible subface of algorithmic processes. What do these three faces and their entanglement tell us? What kind of epistemologies do they imply?
