Publication of Interfaces 50, with a special issue entitled “Re-Scale: The Art and Culture of Size and Scale” edited by Martine Beugnet, Clémence Folléa, Ariane Hudelet, Eliane de Larminat et Catherine Wheatley (King’s College London).

With contributions about painting and graphic arts, photography, film and video, video games and immersive environments, this special issue brings together written articles and video essays that explore the ways in which the production, circulation and reception of images involves “rescaling” the visible, radically transforming our perception and experience of the world in visual, spatial and temporal terms. The issue also includes thematically relevant book reviews.
