A digital image poses a problem: Is the digital work its file, encoded and encrypted and clearly mathematical, or is it a fulfilled, material expression of that file? Or is it both of these?

The makes the photograph's condition one in which the image increasingly functions as a form of data regulated by statistical/algorithmical processes.
