Image Trace is dedicated to the image as a digital tactile experience. Much has been made about the possibilities of the web as a new form of reality, even a virtual realty. In actuality the web is a flattening of reality into a deadened set of tactile experiences. This new reality is a set of coordinates projected onto the smooth flat screen of the monitor. Rather than seeking to escape or deny these aspects of the new image this site seeks to celebrate this new digital tactility.
