Yuguang Zhang and Nuntinee Tansrisakul from NYU Tisch School of the Arts’ Interactive Telecommunications Program, will join us via video artist talk to share their thoughts and findings in the creative process for their project Generative Photography.

The first-ever photograph was made in a pinhole camera in 1826. With hours of exposure time, there were light leaks, changes in shadows, a sense of movement over time. The photograph itself looks more like a drawing and feels genuine, subtle and organic. Today’s image-making technology, Generative Adversarial Networks, although create images that are aesthetically intriguing and culturally relevant, they feel pixelated, mechanical and rigid. The emotional impact is lost as the chemical process is removed. This project aims to study the nuanced visual qualities in pinhole images and implement them in our contemporary image-making technology in the hope to give life to pixels and create an emotional impact for the viewers.

Open to the public, we look forward to seeing you there.
