Brief History of Image is a work composed of a magic lantern manufactured in the late 19th century that projects the photograph considered the first produced in history, by Joseph Nicéphore Niepce. The old image, however, is projected pixelated, after a digital retouching process.


When making use of an apparatus from the pre-cinema era such as the magic lantern and which projects an iconic photograph loaded with digital noise, this work seeks to illustrate, in a figurative way, the trajectory of the reproducible image from the advent of photography until the current days.
