Sara Bastai

Espace Images Vevey

To keep pace with contemporary creation, Images Vevey has joined forces with ECAL/Ecole cantonale d’art de Lausanne, to launch Images Vevey x ECAL, a new prize offering a first solo exhibition to a student completing his/her studies in photography. The first ever Images Vevey x ECAL prize has been awarded to Sara Bastai for her RAM_2.0 project involving artificial intelligence. The artist ran the hundreds of photos in her smartphone through an algorithm, which analysed the images and described what it observed. She then photographed new scenarios based on the generated captions. This created a dialogue between the artist and the machine, exploring the notion of memory through the eyes of technology.
