Image Matter - is an artistic project produced through collaboration between Dave Kemp (a Toronto-based visual artist) and Kevin Robbie (a physicist specializing in nanostructured materials) that investigates the nature of value and new forms of value resulting from advances in digital technologies, specifically as related to photographic images. The project makes use of a scanning electron microscope (SEM) to image a variety of photographic materials edge-on. By displaying the edge view (thickness) of the photographic material on a very large scale, the physicality of the photograph is emphasized and all trace of the image contained within the photograph is eliminated.
