On Saturday April 19 the book “Sarai Reader 09: Projections” was launched at Devi Art Foundation in New Delhi. I participate in the book with a chapter called Enhancement or Distortion? From The Claude Glass to Instagram. The chapter deals with the ways that imaging technologies and various kinds of creative tools can be related to landscape representation. I juxtapose recent discussions on Instagram aesthetics to similar issues that appeared in relation to uses of earlier visual tools like The Claude Glass and The Lorrain Mirror. In the text I introduce the concept “borrowed features” to tweak the understandings of creativity, digital tools and “cheap gains” . The book is available as PDF via the link above.
