In this digitally driven world, we are surrounded by images. An illusion prevails that we can get rid of them as soon as we switch off our computers and smartphones. However, images live long after we go offline: they transgress the realm of television and computer screens and enter our everyday world, albeit slightly grazed. The digital image is a tricky inhabitant of our screens and streets, it possesses two major qualities: elasticity (it can be shrunk, enlarged, zipped, cut, pasted, etc.) and profusion (it can be in multiple places simultaneously). It is both strong and weak, visible (visualisation) and invisible (pure data) and in this respect, as described by Boris Groys, the digital image ‘is functioning as a Byzantine icon – as a visible copy of invisible God.’
