BridA: Biometric portraits

22. March 2022 at 16:00


Workshop for children between 9 and 14 years of age at the Cultural Incubator, Maribor

Measured reality has become a mirror of our society with technological advances. The art workshop touches in a critical and creative way on the issue of capturing private data using various measuring devices and sensors, which are implemented in smartphones, watches, cars, refrigerators, etc. These devices measure and collect our personal information such as, fingerprints, pupils, heart rate, where we are, age, gender, habits and more and more. With all the collected data, we can learn a lot about the person and compile an accurate personal profile from them. When we analyze the collected information, we find that it is a collection of data, and this data can be converted into artistic information such as colors and art compositions through various algorithms and software applications.

Together we will find out where the creative and artistic potentials are hidden in the measurements and how we understand them and how we can use them for painting. Through reflection and analysis of the captured information, we will find together what our modern biometric image should be?
