Visual Methodologies Collective / Sound & Vision Institute (Sept 2022)

In association with the Sound and Vision Institute, the Visual Methodologies Collective held a series of work sessions on using archival audiovisual materials to create supercuts related to the rising water level in the Netherlands. 

Participants developed new ways of querying the Sound and Vision archive by searching in the metadata descriptions and employing computer vision to detect objects and actions within the scenes. 

Using this new ‘supercut’ software, participants created a collection of experimental short films that were presented to researchers at the Sound and Vision Institute and to visitors of the Warming-up Festival at Tolhuistuin.
