Photos made by Artificial Intelligence

For all those who thought the invention of Photoshop changed the way we read photos, think again. Petapixel just publish an article about portraits made by AI, photos of people who never exists. This looks like the end of stock photography, but for artist, the fun times are only about to start!

Summer Lab Hours – Important Information

tumblr_nyrg7aLInd1qzdvk4o1_1280

The Post-Image Lab is closed to non-members for the month of July and will resume operations and normal hours to students and non-members in August. Inquiries can be sent to postimage.research@gmail.com but please note that response time for inquiries will be delayed as the coordinator is also out office for the month of July.

Important Updates:

1. Lab Closure

For the month of July, members may still use the lab but there will be no booking system available or technical support. It is on a first come first serve basis. We are well stocked with printing materials but if  you still run out of your favourite paper, there is nothing that can be done. If you do use the lab, please shake White and Metallic Silver ink cartridges on the solvent printer.

2. New VR Station 

There are a couple new stations at the back of the lab designed for VR research, which is being led by new post-image member Daniel Cross. Please don’t alter the placement of their setup. When the lab reopens at the beginning of August, we can rethink how to design the space for the upcoming academic year.

3. Welcome new members!

A warm welcome to new affiliate, student and faculty members to post-image! We are looking forward to a productive and exciting new year at post-image with several cross-cluster and interdisciplinary events in the works. Please do not hesitate to approach me (Pascha) about ideas you may have for events or questions concerning upcoming cluster activities for the 2018-19 academic year.

4. Upcoming end-of-summer event

We are hoping to have a meet and greet at the end of August or beginning of September at the Post-Image lab. This would be a great opportunity to share event ideas, projects-in-motion and new work among members. 

We will also be launching a catalogue of the 2017 print fundraiser to coincide with this event. 

More info on this event and how you can participate will be forthcoming in August.

Wishing everyone a safe and relaxing summer break. See you in August!
