School of Art, Design and Media
In my artistic research, I argue that the concept of counterfactuals, which has appeared in past decades in science and the humanities, has become popular as a genre in media and the fine arts. I suggest expanding the term in order to include the fine arts and encapsulate the research with the term “counterfactualism” into the relevant disciplines. In this paper, I will introduce the occurrence of counterfactual thoughts in photography.
