Hosted by PAERE, this workshop will be part of a series of workshops organized by Make Friends and hosted at TinEye
In this workshop, we will provide a background on photogrammetry and colour vision as related to race, computer vision and colour in film. Following this, the participants will be able to 3D scan themselves and we will critique what it feels like to have a virtual self.
AfroScanned is a continuation of an art installation held at the Mozilla Festival in 2017. Through generating an participatory understanding of how photogrammetry works, we aim to further the conversation about the connection between computer vision and the importance of diverse online representations in imagery and, in the future, renditions of humanness in virtual formats.
