As the space opens up for artist to more easily consider motion tracking, recognition and other aspects of computervision as a potential tool for installations and process, the questions to grapple with seem to be unavoidably linked to issues [...]

Pre: Minsky and Me
In 1998 I began a project in which I sent texts that had been rendered “poetic” (or just garbled and fucked up) via Babelfish out to massive lists of people, mostly at academic institutions. While spam existed, this was well before the massive overload of spam, the erection of spam blockers and [...]

In response to: Computer Vision for Artists and Designers: Pedagogic Tools and Techniques for Novice Programmers (http://www.flong.com/texts/essays/essay_cvad/)
With the awareness of a society that realizes it should steer away from having “stuff” this article seems to speak to a movement of the opposite direction, one that would increase
peoples awareness of new and emerging [...]

Reading Response 1: Computer Vision for Artists and Designers

Without doubt, this is an interesting article as an overview of computer vision techniques and works for artists and designers. The author insists on the importance of taking into account, not only the software involved when learning these kind of methods, but also its relation with the physical world, which usually represents the key aspect [...]

Reading 1 Response: jesus

Golan Levin’s paper titled Computer Vision for Artists and Designers provides a nice introduction to computer vision using historical context, introducing computer vision in art and also providing a semi-technical perspective on what computer vision is and the techniques it employs. For those of us new to the field, it provides a nice foundation and [...]

My brain hurts!

Ok guys, I read the article and I have to admit a lot of this is old hat.  But then we covered a lot of this in the Spring 2006 class.  Being truthful, I had seen all but one of the pieces in the article before, and while they have deep merit, I didn’t really [...]
