Photography and Collaboration

release date: Sep 14, 2020
Photography and Collaboration
Photography and Collaboration offers a fresh perspective on existing debates in art photography and on the act of photography in general. Unlike conventional accounts that celebrate individual photographers and their personal visions, this book investigates the idea that authorship in photography is often more complex and multiple than we imagine – involving not only various forms of partnership between photographers, but also an astonishing array of relationships with photographed subjects and viewers. Thematic chapters explore the increasing prevalence of collaborative approaches to photography among a broad range of international artists – from conceptual practices in the 1960s to the most recent digital manifestations. Positioning contemporary work in a broader historical and theoretical context, the book reveals that collaboration is an overlooked but essential dimension of the medium’s development and potential.

The First Family

release date: Apr 17, 2018
The First Family
The President’s teenaged son is threatened by a potentially fatal illness that is rooted in dark secrets from a long-buried past. President Geoffrey Hilliard and his family live in the ever-present glare of the political limelight, with relentless scrutiny of their daily lives. The White House is not an easy place to grow up, so when the President’s son Cam, a sixteen-year-old chess champion, experiences extreme fatigue, moodiness, and an uncharacteristic violent outburst, doctors are quick to dismiss his troubles as teen angst. But Secret Service agent Karen Ray, whose job is to guard the president''s family with her life, is convinced Cam’s issues are serious – serious enough to summon her physician ex-husband for a second opinion. Dr. Lee Blackwood’s concerns are dismissed by the president''s team – until Cam gets sicker. Lee must make a diagnosis from a puzzling array of symptoms he''s never seen before. His only clue is a patient named Susie Banks, a young musical prodigy who seems to be suffering from the same baffling condition as Cam. Hospitalized after an attempt on her life by a determined killer, Susie’s jeopardy escalates as Cam’s condition takes on a terrifying new dimension. Is someone trying to murder the President’s son? As Lee and Karen race for a cure to Cam’s mysterious and deadly disease, they begin to uncover betrayals that breach the highest levels of national security. Returning to the same Washington, DC setting of The First Patient, which former President Bill Clinton said “captured the intense atmosphere of the White House,” The First Family is a riveting new medical drama from acclaimed novelist Daniel Palmer, in the tradition of his late father, New York Times bestselling novelist Michael Palmer. Praise for The First Family: "Terrifying and all too plausible—Daniel Palmer continues his father''s tradition of delivering authentic and high-velocity medical suspense.

Digital Light

release date: Oct 09, 2020
Digital Light
Light symbolises the highest good, it enables all visual art, and today it lies at the heart of billion-dollar industries. The control of light forms the foundation of contemporary vision. Digital Light brings together artists, curators, technologists and media archaeologists to study the historical evolution of digital light-based technologies. Digital Light provides a critical account of the capacities and limitations of contemporary digital light-based technologies and techniques by tracing their genealogies and comparing them with their predecessor media. As digital light remediates multiple historical forms (photography, print, film, video, projection, paint), the collection draws from all of these histories, connecting them to the digital present and placing them in dialogue with one another. Light is at once universal and deeply historical. The invention of mechanical media (including photography and cinematography) allied with changing print technologies (half-tone, lithography) helped structure the emerging electronic media of television and video, which in turn shaped the bitmap processing and raster display of digital visual media. Digital light is, as Stephen Jones points out in his contribution, an oxymoron: light is photons, particulate and discrete, and therefore always digital. But photons are also waveforms, subject to manipulation in myriad ways. From Fourier transforms to chip design, colour management to the translation of vector graphics into arithmetic displays, light is constantly disciplined to human purposes. In the form of fibre optics, light is now the infrastructure of all our media; in urban plazas and handheld devices, screens have become ubiquitous, and also standardised. This collection addresses how this occurred, what it means, and how artists, curators and engineers confront and challenge the constraints of increasingly normalised digital visual media. While various art pieces and other content are considered throughout the collection, the focus is specifically on what such pieces suggest about the intersection of technique and technology. Including accounts by prominent artists and professionals, the collection emphasises the centrality of use and experimentation in the shaping of technological platforms. Indeed, a recurring theme is how techniques of previous media become technologies, inscribed in both digital software and hardware. Contributions include considerations of image-oriented software and file formats; screen technologies; projection and urban screen surfaces; histories of computer graphics, 2D and 3D image editing software, photography and cinematic art; and transformations of light-based art resulting from the distributed architectures of the internet and the logic of the database. Digital Light brings together high profile figures in diverse but increasingly convergent fields, from academy award-winner and co-founder of Pixar, Alvy Ray Smith to feminist philosopher Cathryn Vasseleu.

Assessment of Visual Sustained Attention and Visual Spatial Integration in the APP/PS1, 5xFAD, and 3xTG Transgenic Mouse Models of Alzheimer's Disease

release date: Jan 01, 2016
Assessment of Visual Sustained Attention and Visual Spatial Integration in the APP/PS1, 5xFAD, and 3xTG Transgenic Mouse Models of Alzheimer's Disease
In the course of Alzheimer''s Disease (AD) pathology, there is a progressive worsening of cognitive symptoms. One of the important steps in AD research has been to identify early behavioural symptoms that can be used as markers of further cognitive decline. Previous research with humans has shown that attentional deficits may emerge early in the disease course, prior to memory impairments. It has also been shown that deficits in visual spatial learning are also an early marker of further cognitive decline. While these behaviours have been characterized in humans, there has been very little research looking at attention and visual spatial learning in transgenic mouse models of AD. The goal of these experiments was to systematically characterize attention and visual spatial learning in three of the most used transgenic mouse models of AD. TO assess behaviour, we used newly developed touchscreen equipped operant chambers. We used the APP/PS1, 5xFAD, and 3xTG transgenic mouse models of AD in the current study. We also assessed sex differences by comparing male and female mice performance. To assess attention, we used the 5-choice serial reaction time task (5-CSRTT). Animals were run on the 5-CSRTT at 4, 7, and 10 months of age to look for behavioural changes related to neurological decline. Visual spatial learning was assessed with the paired associate learning (PAL) task at 4 months of age. It was found that 3xTG and 5xFAD transgenic mice show deficits in attention, with the 3xTG mice showing a very early phenotype at 4 months of age. The 3xTG and APP/PS1 male transgenic mice showed a significant impairment in visual spatial learning, while the 5xFAD show significant impairment in the retention of visual spatial memories. Overall, these three transgenic lines show significant differences between strains. This study demonstrates that the cognitive profiles of these transgenic lines are dramatically different, and that researchers should make important considerations when deciding on which strain to use for their research.
