Infopoint from Medonis Museum, available in Level 4. It displays the following text:



Daguerreotype is a old technology which originated in Bormavia, but was most popular in Cedony. It was forbidden by Cedonian religious authorities after numerous political backlashes, most notably a coalition of painters. Even today, in those countries, photographies and audiovisual material are not seen in a very good light.

"An artist shouldn't be afraid of technology. If anything, they should see it as a challenge, a opportunity to thrive even further! And that's just keeping the simplistic, binary terms my Cedonian fellows established for the whole debate. I'll tell you what technology really is: new tools, new ways to explore our art."

(Bo Stera)

Today, photographies uses TCT technology, but it went through a variety of stages. Daguerreotypes were executed using copper plates exposed to iodine chloride, then to bromine chloride. Mercury fumes and cinder salts were used for the development, and the image was fixed with sodium thiosulphite.
