Post Image



digital imaging • the future of photography • augmented image


The Post Image Cluster builds on the diversity of its members, their individual practices and expertise. It provides an insight into a myriad of relevant contemporary genres, topics, methodologies and formal output related to the shifting nature of image-making in the digital age.

The Post Image Cluster allows image-based researchers to come together around ongoing projects and the production of individual and collective dissemination programs which embrace the moving and still image, installation, sculpture etc. Research and technical training in digital imaging, sharing of research through artist presentations, roundtable forums, onsite exhibitions, web publications, developing a research network through artist residencies, are some of the activities that are conducted and encouraged. The Post Image Cluster provides faculty and student researchers with access to high-end technical equipment (printers, scanners, portable equipment) and supports them in the production of sophisticated artworks for exhibition and publication. Some of the researchers work in small groups and the crossover between members from different groups makes this cluster all the more eclectic.
