CALL: Ornamisms (2022)

For our new project Ornamisms, we invite jewellery makers and collectors to participate with photos of jewellery that they made or own. These can be any kind of jewellery, whether art, design, fashion, antique, fine, historical, popular culture… made, inherited, gifted, found… from ancient to contemporary, worldwide. These photos of jewellery will contribute to the project by training a machine learning algorithm.

If you wish to participate in this project, click on the weblink below, download the document, read it carefully, complete the info and return a signed copy together with your photos to artificialintelligems@gmail.com

Agreement and participant guidelines: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1J12qiG69W832s6KIp3mQfQtRfR71dGqS/view?usp=sharing 

Both the submitted photos (input) as well as a selection of the generated images (output) will be published on the Artificial Intelligems website and through other presentation formats such as exhibitions and publications within the context of the research project, always including info about the participant, artist, work and/or photographer.

Please note: Artificial Intelligems will crop the photos into images of 1024 x 1024 pixels, showing the jewellery, worn on a human body, in close-up. Thereby the aim is to focus on the jewellery and the skin of the wearer, to create images of Ornamisms in which jewellery and body (e)merge into a new creature. If you plan on making new photos for this project, feel free to take these dimensions into account. 

If you have any questions, you can get in touch via artificialintelligems@gmail.com
