Quickly Photographed and Released Unharmed is part of the collection of generative audiovisual artworks of the same name by Pandelis Diamantides. The collection is part of an ongoing research on non-representational use of screens.
The collection reflects on our visually overstimulated environment. The screen is used as a light source inducing after-images in the vision of the viewer through rapid successions of light and colour, affecting the intake of newer information in the retina. Exploiting the neural mechanisms underlying visual perception the viewer becomes simultaneously the observer and the creator of the artwork.
