Can the photographic image be remediated in other media? Starting from this question, this article argues how 'un-plugged' media art experiments can create extensions of the photographic image by introducing a new setting in time or space. An analysis of flipbooks, based on the work of Volker Gerling, is given as an example of a vivifying extension in time that nonetheless underscores the nature of the photographic image. Next, an analysis of the life-sized sculptural installations and models of Hans Op de Beeck demonstrates how a spectator, in an encounter with a spatial extension, can participate in the resuscitation of a photographic image.
