I’ve been coding away this summer, trying to get my new social media video algorithmic curation project ready. Lots of fun with everything from neural net and computer vision-based video classification to algorithmically-based sound and picture editing. It’ll be a live stream, plus available for installations. It’s almost ready for beta, so stay tuned!
New images posted to the Mary Hallock Greenewalt Visibility Project from the amazing Mary Hallock archive at Historical Society of Pennsylvania. A little bit of everything this time, from pastels and paintings to lots of scientific drawings and calculations. As always, you can search the Flickr database of uploads here.
And the latest set of uploads is here.
Coupla events this coming week! I’ll be speaking on panel at LA SIGGRAPH this Tuesday, Aug 11. The panel is about the “Enhanced Vision” digital video exhibition, for which I had the honor of being part of the curatorial committee. Then on Saturday the 15th, I’ll be back in San Diego performing as VJ Übergeek at San Diego Art Institute in Balboa Park. Also on the menu for the SDAI show: Dynasty Handbag and Gary Wilson… Hope to see you there! And there too!
I’ve got a new paper in the book, “De-automatization.” (“Entautomatisierung.”) My text, “SVEN (Surveillance Video Entertainment Network): Looking Back and Forward” looks back at my 2007 project SVEN – with Wojciech Kosma and Vincent Rabaud – and discusses some of the changes in the cultures of surveillance and sousveillance since then.
Spoke on a panel at UCSD Women in Computing’s “Girl’s Day Out”
for high school women interested in careers in computing. Lots of fun meeting everyone and finding out the other panelists paths to becoming Women in Computing – almost all a bit complicated! And… Women in Computing gave me this t-shirt!
