Opening 3pm, Saturday 14th August 2021
Used to prescribe eyeglasses, define distortion and measure resolution of surveillance satellites, calibration targets have been key to our shared objective visual understanding of reality. Rory Gillen’s exhibition, Uncalibrated Space places these targets as a central focus of modern image processing.
Exploring the facets that deep learning carves into images and investigating the underlying machinations of the algorithms themselves. What is real, and how do we know?
The exhibition continues until 11th September, 2021.
