“Deep Fax: Art and Its Double” questions the ability of digital copies of the universal artistic repertoire to evoke an emotional response in the audience. These “dipfecks” differ from those used for manipulation and confusion to open different perspectives on objects based on advanced technology …

Rich in cultural deepfeck sense. They provide analytical insights of unseen dimensions by encouraging the emergence of unexpected assumptions and connections through technology. The curator of the exhibition, Sarah Kenderdine, explained the director of the EPFL Pavilion.

Technologies such as multi-view and satellite MLS will play an increasingly important role in future art and museum exhibitions Digital projection

A concentration of technological innovations dedicated to visualization

From artificial intelligence to computer vision, from interactive and immersive media to 3D and 5D printing, the technology industry is revolutionizing the way ideas are created, created and experienced, and ‘Deep Fax’ is the first exhibition to scale this technological transformation.

In addition to the twenty-one high-tech works of the presented industry and virtual experience, this Avant-Garde Swiss exhibition will have a row seat in front of the audience for the first technical experience: a combination of digital projection with multi-satellite MLS system – see thousands of years of 3D projection technology, Michelsberg Benedictine Church, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, to assist in the reconstruction of the site in Bamberg, Germany.

The object is a digital element that explores new forms

“Deep Fax”, which covers 1,000 m², is ” Completion of several years of creative practice from the computer world “The curator of the exhibition explains. These new artifacts, which are borrowed or based on existing artefacts, have been baptized as a “deep cultural net” for the occasion.

It is only recently that artists and producers have begun to fully realize the potential of computer manufacturing and new art forms. Sarah Kenderdein, a professor at the museum with more than twenty years of experience, has created and created large-scale, immersive and interactive exhibits for museums, as well as Asian World Heritage Sites, such as Angkor. Greece in Cambodia and Europe, Olympia.

The “deep cultural net” displayed in the EPFL pavilion on the school campus includes “The Next Rembrandt”, which uses artificial intelligence to create a “new” work of a Dutch master who lived and died in 1947. 17th century; The Golden Cliff, by leading media artist Jeffrey Shaw, who reveals himself only when the visitor walks his feet in a “dance of worship”; And a complete digital reconstruction of the interior of Abbey St. Michel, Bamberg, a thousand-year-old monastery.

The physical Michelsberg Abbey has been closed for renovations since 2012, when structural damage was discovered. As part of the restoration process, 3D laser scanning expert Arctron was commissioned by Bamberg City to create a high-resolution photorealistic recreation of the church interior, featuring significant works of art, the late Renaissance and Rococo sculpture and architecture.

For the ‘Deep Fax’ exhibition, Weimar’s Bauhaus University’s Virtual Reality and Visualization Research Group and the spin-off company have developed real-time rendering techniques for 3D models of the conceivable arcatron to present a submerged reality using multi-view. , Digital projection multi-user 3D projection technology that has no equivalent in the market.

Lausanne’s digital projection system, which was also installed by Bauhaus University, includes an Insight satellite MLS4K HFR 360 projector, as well as six pairs of glasses made by Wolfney. Thanks to the unique ultra-fast frame rate (360 frames per second) for multi-view, this unique projector is able to provide a truly 3D experience for multiple viewers, each with a view of the display that adapts to its location. It allows users to see and interact with each other in a truly collaborative and shared way.

Instead of delivering 120 frames per second, which is enough for single-user 3D, the Insight Satellite MLS 4K HFR 360 delivers an unparalleled 360 frames. Encourages Sarah Kenderdein, who says this technology is nothing short of revolutionary for heritage experts, as it can give everyone a shared experience of viewing a digital artwork. ” Giving each user a unique perspective on an object gives us unprecedented possibilities for collaboration. “, He enthuses.

In its Satellite MLS (Modular Laser System) specification, the Insight Satellite MLS4K HFR 360 offers museum professionals a more attractive solution for modern multimedia display, says Thierry Olivier, Business Development Manager for Digital Projection. Fake “. With the help of Satellite MLS, small and lightweight projector heads are decoupled from the light source, which allows bright 4K projection with a small footprint around the display material and minimal sound / heat output. Makes where heat and space are limited (theater, opera house, historic building 7).

For the demonstration, real-time 3D immersive technology was used to create relief materials and a digital projection was projected from the Insight satellite MLS 4K HFR 360 projector. Digital projection

Set 7 for the development of an immersive approach

Technologies such as multi-view and satellite MLS will play an increasingly important role in future art and museum exhibitions, where audiovisual will help immerse viewers into a more interactive experience, Kendride believes.

At the museum level, these tools offer new ways of telling stories: stories that aren’t necessarily educational, stories that emerge and respond to user interaction, and stories that the viewer can embody and live. Opens audiovisual archives and offers many more possibilities to reuse them. It gives artists, creators and curators a new canvas to create an aesthetic structure that we have never seen before and a method of engagement that delights transport and the audience.. A

Especially for digital projection solutions, EPFL pavilions can’t be happier with the results: ” The unit worked perfectly, with the remote support of digital projection it was launched in half a day. The audience members also paid homage to him. They can tell the difference: it’s different from what they’ve seen before. And EPFL scientists also came to visit the exhibition at various events, to see the new possibilities of technology. “, Emphasizes the curator of the exhibition.

After ten years working with Professor Kenderdein on projection and virtual reality projects, I congratulate her on her talent and her efforts to bridge the gap between technology and industry. Thierry finished Olivia. “”Deep Fax ”combines the skills of digital projection, conceit and wolfney. This state-of-the-art technology and skill, at the service of Sarah and her team, offers a wide audience for local students, ranging from world-renowned cultural authorities, to experiencing a completely successful virtual reality … you have to see it to believe it!

“Deep Fax: Art and Its Double” is designed in two parts.

  • Pavilion B, Part I, consists of nineteen installations, dealing with the themes of Simulacrum, Mirror Worlds, Digital Doubles, Cryptocurrency and Artificial Intelligence.
  • At the pavilion, Part II deals with endangered heritage, its archives and digital memory, and its reconstruction.
