Re: Report 9: Final Project

Attached is a proposal for "PET ADOPTION POWERED BY AI", an internet project to be accessed via website and application that incorporates facial recognition, data analysis, AI and machine learning, in order to pair individuals with pets listed for adoption based on facial similarities.

Re: Report 7: Aesthetic Explorations in AI

In discussing some of the high prices AI-generated works have fetched at auction, the issue of duplication—individuals using the same code and same input in order to achieve the same results—was a major point of interest. Why pay $50,000+ for a work you could create yourself? Then again, why pay $15...

Re: Report 6: Vision & Machine Learning

A few things spoke out to me this week. First, I appreciated the discussion of Baldessari’ s use of human gaze in his subjects, directing the attention of the viewer around his photographs. This is often something I strive to accomplish in my collage work, using the elements of photos I excise to bo...

Re: Report 5: Generative Art, Computational Aesthetics

Our initial discussion of generative art led me to ponder the possibilities of other analog works could fit within the definition given by Galanter: “Generative art refers to any art practice where the artist uses a system, such as a set of natural language rules, a computer program, a machine, or o...

Re: Report 4: Volumetric data, Computational Photography

This week’s topics certainly reawakened my inner scientist. Depth Sensing, Photogrammetry and Computational Photography undoubtedly have many applications in the entertainment and surveillance aspects of modern life. From AR games to self-driving cars, there are countless uses for these technologica...

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

There’s no question femto-photography captured my attention this week. Next to seeing through walls, the ability to effectively capture images around corners has a wide array of practical applications ranging from predictive safety features in self-driving cars, to less intrusive endoscopy and safer...

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

When it comes to noise, it seems as if our society is still overcoming an obsession with cleanliness and order—removing background noise in recorded music, radio stations having multiple call signals to prevent overlap with neighboring channels, images growing crisper every few months when new digit...

Re: Report 1: Apparatus Fundamentals / Historical Examples

After examining the first few weeks of material retroactively, I’ve come to appreciate how the role of photography has shifted as we’ve transitioned from analog to digital, but in other ways the artform has become more honest. When we think of the early days of traditional portrait photography, hars...
