Do Images Dream of Seeing? is a visual thought experiment that tries to transfer posthuman ideas to the world of digital images. The resulting works – objects, photographs and installations – are the product of in-depth observation of photographic images and the assumption of their subjectivity, which allows them to undertake activities that exist independently of people’s ability to recognize, explore and understand them.

Imagine that digital images are living organisms that freely traverse the Internet. They reproduce, communicate with each other and adapt their digital bodies to the needs and expectations of the human observer. But what do they really want? Is Mitchell correct in writing that photographs desire to be observed? What do they dream of when there is no one  to see them? How do they rest? Does the visual environment have its own biology?
