Open Data Cam / moovel Lab

„‚Open Data Cam‘ is a tool that helps to quantify the world. With computer vision ‚Open Data Cam‘ understands and quantifies what it sees. The simple DIY setup allows everybody to become an urban data miner.“

False Positives / Esther Hovers

„The project False Positives is about intelligent surveillance systems. These are camera’s that are said to be able to detect deviant behaviour within public space. False Positives is set around the question of normative behaviour. It aims to raise this question by basing the project on eight different ‘anomalies’. These so called anomalies are sign in body-language and movement that could indicate criminal intent. It is through these anomalies the algorithms are built and cameras are able to detect deviant behaviour.“

CCamera / Marco Land

„With 657 billion digital images per year being captured and pushed to the web, it is likely that at some point in your life you’ve taken a photo that already exists. And you will continue to do so with the help of this app.

CCamera is the first camera app that takes images that have already been uploaded to the internet. It brings your photos to the next level — because they’re not yours.“

Every possible photograph / Jeff Thompson

„This project investigates the idea of using computation to “use up” a piece of technology, in this case a digital camera. Using custom-written software (and a very long period of time), every possible photograph is generated, one at a time and in numerical order.“

See also his other projects exploring ideas of technical images, algorithms, abstraction, and computational vision.

interface / Ralf Baecker

„… camera and monitor function as a mirror that links the images of the viewers. […] The software, which runs between camera and monitor, attempts to re-construct each face from image fragments of the other. The image of one face cannot be realised without the other and vice versa.

Descriptive Camera / Matt Richardson

The camera produces no image but a textual description of the motive, written by some strange user of Mechanical Turk web service.
