Sebastian Schmieg

How is computation, machine learning and computer vision shaping the production and meaning of digital images today? This season, we are presenting two new commissions by Berlin-based artist Sebastian Schmieg on our Media Wall and online that explore this.

In Search by Image, Live (Lena/Fabio), Schmieg uses Google’s reverse image search engine to unpack the evolving narratives around the infamous image of Lena Söderberg - one of the most ubiquitous images in computing history. Shot for a Playboy magazine centerfold in 1972, the photo was adopted by programmers to test software algorithms.  

As a way to understand how machines are taught to analyse and read images, Schmieg has created an online project, which develops a new image data set.  Decision Space invites audiences to contribute to this new classification system.
