Sketchy Recognition 2020 (Notes)

For the online installation of Sketchy Recognition, we plan a multiform online publication that (1) documents the experiences of the pianofabriek installation, (2) provides addition context in the form of text, software probes, and video, and (3) an invitation to participation through downloadable/printable PDF coloring book (photos of complete drawings can be uploaded to the site / archive), and an online discussion / collective drawing session.

Materials we have

The "Carmentis Coloring Book" v1, as used in Pianofabriek
Post-installation scans of drawings made at pianofabriek

Topics to address

  • The non-neutrality / culurally-b(i)ased classifications that comes from the quickdraw data set
  • The mismatch of how things are (mis) classified...
