François Quévillion – Algorithmic Drive, 2019

François Quévillon’s “Algorithmic Drive” is a project that I personally found to be very interesting. This project is an interactive installation that was inspired by cars and dash cams. It began with François collecting a large database of recordings from a camera attached to his car’s computer. The data collected includes information on location, orientation, speed, temperature, stabilitiy, etc. This data is fed into a sampling system that uses signal processing, data analysis, and computer vision algorithms that then begins to sort the content statistically. The information is mapped using a Uniform Manifold Approcimation and Projection dimension reduction technique.

This project was interesting to me because it utilizes data and information that surrounds us in our daily life, but is then used to create something new and creative.
