Title: The white space conflict theory: understanding photography as energy

The three essays that form part of this trilogy all hold that the full impli- cations of the emergence of photography in human society and, in particular, in physical reality, are yet to be understood. Speaking in three voices, the trilogy ponders the nature of photography from the points of view of art history, physics, and art. Historian of photography Gaston Gabriel Marceau explores the connec- tions between the different histories of photography and quantum mechanics. He suggests that photography is energy. Chinese physicist Professor Ma develops this proposition further with the aid of the white space theory and the concept of “du- plicording” which refers to the action of the recording apparatus, the camera or the phonograph. In the last essay, Malay artist Gila Masok sounds an urgent Open Call to Open-minded Scientists designating a possible path of joint art-and- science investigations of a phenomenon at the heart of the more recent “dupli- cording” developments such as big data.
