The Quantified Self
Event Title: OPEN ART
Date and Time: 22/05/2021 (20:00-23:30)
Stella Salta

The advancement of technology and image processing has allowed our digital reflections to gain great power due to their trustworthy clarity, high resolution accuracy and realistic immersion, to the extent that we are often determined by our digital representation rather than by our physical existence. The project “Quantified Self”, as a real time digital interactive portrait of ours, creates a speculative representation of how computer vision perceives and understands our digital reflection, therefore exploring what happens to our images while they become data transmissions. Our interactive portrait takes place in an imaginary n-dimensional space, through which we can navigate by the motion of our hands, in order to explore our personal data structure. Navigating the microscopic world of the thousand pixels of our digital representation, shows us how algorithms are able to read us through processes we are not aware of, nor we are able to grasp. Information is not just an immaterial flow of electromagnetic waves hovering upon us, but it is us ourselves that constitute every bit and byte of it. We have been numerically quantified, we have been extensively measured and therefore we shall be accurately “predictable”.

Stella Salta
Stella Salta is an architect and computational designer, based in Athens. Her research focuses on the implementation of coding tools and generative algorithms in Digital Arts and Architecture, in order to discover new potential modes of creation. Her main objective is to experiment with the morphogenetic capabilities of matter, in physical and digital environments, in order to move beyond the dominant anthropocentric definition of creation. Following this approach, she puts her trust in speculative notions of design, self-organization practices and the creative force of non-human entities. She graduated from AUTH School of Architecture in 2018 and is currently a PhD student in NTUA School of Architecture.
