CINEMA FOR ROBOTS






Cinema For Robots is an exploration into reflexivity and computational technology. The technique of photogrammetry was used to generate a 3D model of a site in the form of a point could. Images from the data set that was used to generate the point cloud are then interpolated with the scene, re-positioned and re-animated to reflexively show their original capture of the scene. There is an interest to find ways to justapose cinematic aesthetics with computational aesthetics, in the context of the gaze of future cinema technologies. Photogrammetry is a technique to create a computational scan of a scene using ordinary photographic cameras, a branch of technology known as reality computing.
