Title:

  • Dynamics of Perceptions: Engaging with the Felt Experience of Temporally Dynamic Algorithms

Organiser/Presenter(s):



Abstract:

  • Dynamics of Perception looks at the relation between machine subjectivity and human subjectivity expressed temporally with artistic media.

    The workshop will introduce you to cutting edge algorithmic technics, such as Spiking Neuron Networks and Reservoir Computing, which have the potential to generate complex temporal dynamics and patterns difficult, if near impossible, to be scripted by humans. You will get to manipulate those algorithms with the newly developed software “autonomX” by lab Xmodal. This software uses an intuitive graphic interface to create with life-like processes and express them in real-time through light, sound, video or robots.

    In parallel, you will be introduced to key anthropological notions to address human-machine relationships through their sensorial and perceptual qualities. The workshop will be structured around a series of short presentations, experiments and discussions. It will gradually unfold the temporal dimension of autonomous, emergent and self-organizing computational technics and discuss how they can participate in generating strong perceptual and aesthetic experiences.
