SIMAGE PROJECT

With found contributions by dozens of influential voices in philosophy, economics, politics, popular culture, art, and design, Simage Project attempts to trace the evolution of “image” from its first known expressions 50,000 years ago to the present through visual and written essays. The project gathered hundreds of personal and public domain images to explore how the evolution of representation can be placed within contemporary cultural contexts.

The imagery we see has always been putatively curated to give us handles on reality, but when bag data and social media optimization combine to drive pictorial accumulations and filtered disseminations, “image” then sublimates the idea of representation and becomes its own form of established reality.
