Migration

Pietro Garrone & Chloe True


‘electronic aids, particularly domestic computers, will help the inner migration, the opting out of reality. Reality is no longer going to be the stuff out there, but the stuff inside your head. It’s going to be commercial and nasty at the same time.’ —J.G. Ballard In our lifetime we have been part of one of the largest migrations in history. Advancements in information technology have transported us from a largely offline existence to an online one. Host Migration is comprised of a series of carefully selected image juxtapositions, constructed with the intention that they should to be viewed in quick succession, imitating an Internet trawl. Whilst navigating through the book, the reader is prompted to think about the connotations of the imagery and the connections between each of the juxtapositions. ‘The photograph reverses the purpose of travel, which until now had been to encounter the strange and unfamiliar.’ —Marshall McLuhan In response to this idea we aim to create a journey in the reader’s mind, using found imagery that in part maps the materiality of the Internet. This collaboration was born out of a shared interest in photography and the future of the medium, and was inspired by the artist Mishka


Henner whose work frequently uses imagery found on the Internet. ‘a new approach to photography is seeing the light - photographers without cameras. The need to press the shutter is replaced by a direct interest in images. Not necessarily in making images.’ —Mishka Henner
