Electrical Insight

Workshop with Sebastian Vargas

Electrical Insight is a computer program that makes borderline judgments about the content of images. Its algorithms were once trained to recognize images coherently and precisely, but it is now asked to make the strangest distinctions. And you are asked to do the same. Initial project made during a one-week workshop with Dries Depoorter. Video produced during a workshop led by Sebastian Vargas.

Image en mouvement

FOUNDATION YEAR

Image en mouvement

"Make believe" Projet ayant pour but de pouvoir expérimenter les étapes de préparation, de création et de production d’un film. Le travail est divisé en 3 parties: la création de l’objet, le pitch et la production du film. Le film doit promouvoir un objet imaginaire, purement fictionel créé par les étudiants eux-même, ainsi qu'un univers visuel et sonore qui le mette en contexte.

Sebastian Vargas – Postgram

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

Postgram is my personal automated online bot dedicated to the practice of «fair hacking». Using an @post.gram instagram account, each time a photo is published, the bot uses geolocalisation data to seek someone living close by, using a public directory. Once someone has been found, he/she is automatically added as a new contact in my phone and is sent a printed postcard of the image. New contacts are notified of the postcard with a suggestion to meet and film the encounter. Postgram counterposes public data and image making, using a process of «fair hacking» of public services.
