Aesthetics Of Exclusion

De Waag - Planet B Meet-up

During the monthly planet B meetings, scientists, artists and citizens are invited to have a dialogue about the social and ecological challenges of our time.

The starting point of each meeting is the artistic work in progress of artists whose research is focused on these challenges. Meetup #4 will take place on Thursday 17 October, at the outpost of Waag at Amsterdam Science Park.

In this meetup we feature Aesthetics of Exclusion, a collaborative design research project. They question how we can use computer vision techniques and machine learning to explore and analyse aesthetical styles that relate with gentrification in StreetView archives and Instagram.

During the meetup, the collective will show experiments and works in progress that focus on the representations of Amsterdam bar culture on Instagram. We will also look at GAN’s (Generative Adversarial Networks) that are trained on Amsterdam Streetview imagery with the aim to transform inputted Streetview images back and forth between the past, present and future.
