Re: Report 7: Aesthetic Explorations in AI

What are the social implications of the contemporary photographic image? I was certainly disappointed when I uploaded my face into Face++ Face Comparison https://www.faceplusplus.com/face-comparing/ and was only able to compare my face to the stock photo of a presumably older gentleman in the free v...

Re: Report 6: Vision & Machine Learning

This week I was drawn to the readings: Inceptionism: Going Deeper into Neural Networks , Alexander Mordvintsev (2015), The Machine Vision , Paul Virilio (1994), and Excavating AI , Kate Crawford and Trevor Paglen (2019). The articles together provide a chronology of process: capturing reality, creat...

Re: Report 5: Generative Art, Computational Aesthetics

When considering the foundational goals of computational aesthetics according to Anselm Brachmann and Christoph Redies’s Computational and Experimental Approaches to Visual Aesthetics (2017), In 1876, the founder of experimental aesthetics, Gustav Fechner, published his seminal book entitled “Vorsch...

Re: Report 4: Volumetric data, Computational Photography

Prior to this week's discussion on volumetric data and computational photogrammetry I was playing around with a few different iphone apps- Trnio and Matterport (primarily used for real estate)- to experiment with moving my studio practice/installation into a digital space. These are not really pract...

Re: Report 3: Material-based, Software-based Explorations

For this week I was interested in breaking down what I would consider as reliable information within the drastic scope for the complex methods of recording space/time/dimension to seemingly simple salt/chocolate prints. I was reminded of the artist Jorge Otero-Pailos- specifically his project The Et...

Re: Report 2: The Pixel-based Image & its Processing

This week I was particularly drawn to the artists working in layered transparencies and pixel averaging image processing. To name a few that were mentioned in lecture and also linked in the syllabus: Idris Khan, Jason Salavan, Jim Campbell and Micheal Naggar. In my studio practice I am consistently ...

Re: Report 1: Apparatus Fundamentals / Historical Examples

What I was thinking about when going over the slides and information in the first week was the possibility of integrating eye-tracking into a photographic process as a way to have human visual limitations dictate the focus and visual information as opposed to machine capability. I started virtually ...
