In Defense of Poor Image

Website: Here

TicToc: the audience may not really care about low resolution, proven by the existence of TicToc. The content and messages might be more important Web: there is a trade-off: network bandwidth restricted us to transfer high-resolution images or films. If internet transmission can be made using a higher frequency of light, quality can be improved. (there is a trade-off here) Deep Neural Networks: It has the ability to transform a low-quality image to a high-quality image without using external data. When such a network is built to suit all images, the trade-off can be solved to produce both high-quality images and high-speed transmission rates. Economy: I don’t like how the author phrase certain sentences in a way saying that the bad images are a huge problem in our society. Whenever we browse on Youtube, your web page is dominated by all these image thumbnails generated by a sophisticated algorithm that increases the probability of you clicking it. If the image you see is bad enough for you to criticize, why don’t you criticize your taste of the thumbnail in the first place? Money shapes behavior, and behavior shape money. Photography: well, all good photographs are taking under extremely high resolution. Meme: images of bad quality sometimes can be pleasing. I remember I would purposely compress the image to create memes from high resolution to low resolution.

Remix Project

Choose a strategy among the ones suggested here and in class

I want to create a chronological history of space-time by remixing videos chronologically, including: TV noise, the empty scene, big explosion, forming of stars, earth, solar system, microorganism, fish and shell, dinasource, apes, early civilization, human society, futuristic society, global disaster, solar system expansion, red giant, planetary nebula, white dwarf... If I can, I will try to make the events somewhat proportional to actual time.
