As of 2014, 75% of IKEA images are renders. Visual culture is almost entirely computationally produced which has significant consequences for our ability to examine and understand it. 

This event is a continuation of a series examining the relationship between digital image production and notions of truth in the contemporary age. As increasing amounts of images are computationally produced, edited and disseminated there are significant consequences for our ability to interpret meaning and truth from them. This panel explored the nature of truth in image production from forensic and evidentiary stand points to critical and creative enquiry. The lineup included Tobias Revell, Lauren Alexander of Foundland, Leonhard LassSimone Niquille and Eliot Higgins of Bellingcat
