Title The creation of virtual luminous enclaves through 3D imaging

Abstract The broad aim of my PhD by Project is to make an academic, conceptual and aesthetic contribution in the current debate concerning the new technologies. In particular, I discuss my creative art practice using a 3D computer graphics application for image creation from the standpoint as an art practitioner with an established professional background in fine art photography.

This involves undertaking a very different kind of creative art production, one that requires the visual study of the city I have constructed in the virtual environment. The computer and associated technologies used to generate a collection of still images has resulted in a move from traditional photographic equipment and modus operandi of past studio endeavours. However, the camera, albeit in virtual form, is still the central tool for image production.

The implications of the shift in creative art production from analogue to digital; the change of location, from the physical world to the virtual environment; and prerequisite construction of the city, previously in existence; are some comparative situations explored in more depth throughout the Exegesis. I analyse the issues of embodiment and control in the 3D computer generated virtual environment in relation to image genesis.
