We have a bonus Foundations of Physics seminar tomorrow, on the relationship between philosophy of time and photography. Details as follows:

Speaker: Amelia Groom (Sydney)
Title: Still Moving: Duration and the Instant in Photography.

Abstract: Photographs are often read as slices into continuity that isolate an instant from the flow of time. Drawing examples from contemporary art, nineteenth century photography, and proto-photos that predate the invention of the camera, this paper considers examples where duration is inscribed in the photographic image. Rather than suspending transience, the images I look to straddle object and process, simultaneity and sequence, dynamism and stasis. The research forms part of a broader investigation of non-teleological time in art, for my doctoral dissertation in art history.

Time: Thursday 23rd May, 11:30-13:00
Location: Philosophy Common Room, Main Quad - A14, University of Sydney.

Everyone is welcome!
