Photos as Medium 

Artists using photos as a medium to create new objects or images based on the content of the photos.

Korean artist Gwon Osang makes sculptures from hundreds of photos plastered to mannequins.

Laguna using them to make 3D crazy cat murals.

Lola Dupré slices photos into hundreds of tiny pieces and warps them into wholly new images.

The first digital camera 

Kodak’s first digital camera designed in 1975.

It took 23 seconds to record the digitized image to the cassette.  The image was viewed by removing the cassette from the camera and placing it in a custom playback device.  This playback device incorporated a cassette reader and a specially built frame store.  This custom frame store received the data from the tape, interpolated the 100 captured lines to 400 lines, and generated a standard NTSC video signal, which was then sent to a television set.
