    Nicely done!

    I don’t know why, but this makes me happy.

    It was so EASY! I’m amazed! Just shoot video with the still camera by mistake when you thought you were taking a still photo, import it using ImageCapture (built into Mac OS), edit slightly in iMovie, export with really bad quality so that the file is almost as small as a tiny image, and embed it. Then do it again without sound because the sound is so annoying 🙂


    I like the pixellation.

    That’s funny, Jill, because my favorite part of the movie was the sound – it made me feel like the quicktime movie was a little gateway to another place — the image itself doesn’t have the same effect. Then again, that’s just me!

    For some reason I didn’t get the sound. I’ll try again from different computers and let you know what works…

    Happy to see you are having fun though, out there beyond the frame!

    Oh, the sound was only there for the first hour after I posted it. Then I posted it again without sound, because I find sound in websites annoying, most of the time. Well, not always. Perhaps I’ll try using sound that you can turn on or off.

    I like your idea of sound as an opening to another world, Ghani. Mm.

    And I’m having a wonderful time outside the frame 🙂

    . . . first experience was with sound . . . totally stimulating . . . yes the sound became annoying so hit the mute key . . . next time expected the sound (wanted the sound) . . . gone & thought something was wrong until read the comments . . . sound informs the image . . . imagine the sound without the image which happens if you scroll off the image . . . too delightful . . .

    Sound’s in again 🙂

    Reminds of a line from “Lost in Translation”. Something about taking pictures of your feet …

    No way to turn off the sound? Quickly becomes annoying.

    This was sort of spellbinding.
    This was sort of spellbinding. When the page opened, I sort of lapsed into a dreamstate, staring at the animation for about five minutes before I realized I’d lost most of my powers of volition. Kind of like The Ring,…

Four visual registers for imaginaries of machine vision

I’m thrilled to announce another publication from our European Research Council (ERC)-funded research project on Machine Vision: Gabriele de Setaand Anya Shchetvina‘s paper analysing how Chinese AI companies visually present machine vision technologies.

Do people flock to talks about ChatGPT because they are scared?

Whenever I give talks about ChatGPT and LLMs, whether to ninth graders, businesses or journalists, I meet people who are hungry for information, who really want to understand this new technology. I’ve interpreted this as interest and a need to understand – but yesterday, Eirik Solheim said that every time […]
