Abstract: Computer vision is changing the way we see the world and each other. We now exist in a dual perceptual state of machinic and human observation where identities are atomized throughout the electromagnetic spectrum and reconstructed again by black boxed algorithms. This lecture will discuss the implications of multispectral, multi-modal identities and propose a new framework for understanding images through the axis of optical sensing technologies.
The lecture will be followed by a workshop on Wednesday, 20 June 2018, 10:00-13:00. Room 112.
