My Instagram Engagement
This live application is visually representing my personal Instagram engagement through colour. This process combines machine learning and coding as I analysed the dominant colours from GAN images trained on the content I engaged with on Instagram. I used creative coding software Processing to create a script that organically reads and runs through the colour data from 250 of these GAN images off of a CSV file. Using game engine platform Unity, I imagined this piece as a live large-scaled projection. The purpose of this realisation is visually representing my Instagram engagement and allowing participants to experience the colour palettes I engage with on Instagram. This live application simulates scrolling through an Instagram feed. James Turrell’s large-scaled projections have inspired my design choices for this workflow. Turrell is known for his immersive installations that engaged viewers with the limits of human perception. I feel that through the brightly coloured rooms, these experiences become about how we experience the art.
