Algorithmic personalisation is ‘a process of gathering, storing, and analyzing information’ (Venugopal, 2009) by recommendation systems. It is a response to the discrepancies between the amount of… Read More »Personalized Narrative

Volumetric Cinema

The advent of new sensing technologies has shifted the contemporary experience of visual content to include 3 dimensions. With remote satellite sensing we have transitioned from viewing the earth from a planar map to a 3 dimensional globe. Depth LIDAR sensors and motion trackers used… Read More »Volumetric Cinema

AI Optimization

Artificial intelligence generates the cinematic substance of today, molding the clay of the cinematic image itself. This can most readily be observed in the cultural phenomena of deep fakes, produced by general adversarial networks (also known as GANs). These neural network processing works in binary… Read More »AI Optimization

Environmental reconstructions

‘Current’ focuses on democratising reconstruction techniques to facilitate a collective contribution to urban archives. Instead of using high end technologies and softwares that are only available to institutions and corporations, ‘Current’ tested a number of low-end sensors (i.e. mobile phones, Kinect, drones, etc.), open-sourced AI… Read More »Environmental reconstructions
