It had slipped my mind just how great - and, typically of things forgotten, useful for my thesis - David Hockney's early forays into the photographic world were (see above). That is, until I read this article on his latest foray, using multiple digital cameras in generate a gridded image which becomes a 'moving collage', in Technology review. Not only is the article inspiring, situating this new practice in relation to Hockey's broader oeuvre and in relation to historical constructs of 'perspective', but the resultant images are also stunning. As Hockney points out in the interview, "Don't we need people who can see things from different points of view?"
