I've started writing my report and I'm using a digital photo to illustrate the point. While thinking about it, I reminded myself of some stuff from Lev Manovich, and his crazy digital world.
I was writing about digital data, and how it allows us to have a way of synthesizing images. We simply reverse the photo capturing process and we can form any image we want.
I'm trying to find some article by Manovich to illustrate this point better.
