dc.description.abstractIn the networked condition of the 21st century, everyday life takes on a radical visibility, putting serious limitations on old forms of tactical creativity, and perhaps necessitating a new understanding of tactics, themselves. By aligning aspects of Michel de Certeau’s strategies and tactics with Vilém Flusser’s functionalism and ‘playing against the camera’, I search for contemporary examples of creative resistance that manage to operate in the heavily surveilled present. Re-presentation is a method by which the re-contextualisation of strategically produced image technology reveals some hidden, ignored or ‘depresented’, i.e. hidden by design, aspect of its origin. It is a gesture of non-oppositional resistance, seeking to produce knowledge in image form rather than to destroy the strategically produced original. Using examples from my own studio practice and others’, I argue that an engagement with digital images involving their re-presentation can constitute a tactical approach to image use and production not merely in spite of, but also enabled by, 21st century visibility.en
