If a image what people made looks like a real thing, actually, it deceives you as if it were true. The age of Computer simulation, Virtual Reality is at hand. What is real?
Black and white photo does actually exist because it is image of concepts belonging to the theory of optics as Vilém Flusser said.
Likewise, we need consider about digital image and where it is coming from.
One day, maybe, one day, human can make simulation of this world in digital space such as The Matrix. The Big Bang was really happened already. In early century of 20th, when the first digital computer was born, it was happened.
For this reason, I want to present the real belonging of digital image.

History of Digital Image

What are we looking at?
There are images which are visibly marked by the electronic means of their trasmission, such as the break down of a 'photographic' image into horizontal line - a video effect.
For the most part,
the significant difference between the purely photographic and the digitally registered photograph lie in the way it was 'taken' or transmitted, not simply the way it looks.
Photographs and photographic images
In the growing critical literature about photography and new image technologies, two related sets of questions have been asked.
The epistemological questions ask what kind of knowledge a digital rather than photographic image proveds us with and how it does it.
The ontological questions are asked about what kid of thing an image is(or is now coming to be) as it becomes enceded as electronic data, in what form or material and where does it now exist?
