Hélène Portier – Temps Passé, Temps Réel

Diploma project by Hélène Portier

“Temps Passé, Temps Réel” is a design research project that explores new forms of engagement with various sources through an immersive installation. Using artificial intelligence, images posted on today’s social networks awaken two centuries of world heritage. Using such technologies to combine collections has opened up new challenges related to trust and credibility. Further experiments have been conducted in order to understand public perception and to define trust parameters related to content aggregation generated by artificial intelligence. Collaboration with RTS, Institut de recherche Idiap, Musée suisse de l'appareil photographique and Confrérie des Vignerons. contact@heleneportier.com https://www.heleneportier.com

Hélène Portier – 20°C

Diploma project with Alain Bellet, Cyril Diagne, Christophe Guignard, Gaël Hugo

Send a message: 140 milliseconds. Download a news: 1.4 seconds. Take a picture: 370 milliseconds. Information is accessible anywhere and anytime. Through our daily actions, we solicit the network without limits and without constraints. For most people, the internet is elusive and invisible. For GAFA, the network shall consist of data centers, submarine cables and coal mines. 20°C is a series of three objects that questions this physical reality and proposes a tangible interaction with our data.
