the relationship between the military industrial complex, new technology,
death without trial and the psychological implication of our relationship
with the screen.

Art and Photography: Relationship and Tautology.
"Until more recent times, photography’s relationship
with painting was problematic; how far did photography challenge
the painter’s craft, would the painter’s integrity be
compromised if photography was used as a drawing aid? Should photography
be considered as an art form on a par with painting?
So, what was the relationship between painting and photography,
and why and how do photographs now hang alongside paintings in art
galleries as ‘cultural equals’?"
