Through this project, I explored the theoretical implications of Live Photos as a new photographic technology, specifically in its function as a ubiquitous medium that pervades iPhone users’ attempt to preserve memory or capture a specific moment. I hope to have created an immersive experience that uses a mass of Live Photos to highlight the ways they automatically transform everyday photographs, not only visually, but also in the ideology behind using the iPhone camera, to show that the Live Photo’s function falls into the logic of remediation through immediacy and hypermediacy, altering temporality and the idea of photographic realism in relation to everyday use.
