It is sometimes hard to believe that a pixel has a hard lined border. Even a line neatly drawn with a ruler, when magnified to the right degree, is just a collection of seemingly chaotic dots.
Many scientists and philosophers try to answer the question of what our reality is really like. Is what you see exactly what you think it is? Does the human eye, even supported by all the sophisticated modern technology, provide the right categories of description to define the world? Bruno Latour finds works of art as the most efficient way of describing some of the phenomena. Perhaps it is because that kind of description does not look for hard lined answers, but only ask more questions. What does a machine-made post-photography say about the world then?
