DullDream™ by DullTech™ is a series of experiments appropriating neural network image recognition technology to make visual representation less interesting.
Can machine learning help us desensitize? Our impactful lives are clogging up social media feeds with unique filter settings, leaving us nostalgic for a vanilla future. Can machine learning help us achieve this? Take the excitement out of our lives, prepare us for a time where we will all have to be the same, have the same values and culture? Painting a future where the Dull is no longer a dream but a nightmare?
DullDream™ (version 2) was developed for the OpenCodes exhibition at ZKM. It based on the original DullDream™ (version 1), developed for Transmediale 2017 - Ever Elusive by Constant Dullaart in collaboration with Adam Harvey. DullDream (V2) has been generously made possible by support from ZKM.
