Machine Learning and Visual Arts: Exploration and Exhibition

Anteism Books presents:

LATENT SEE

Emerging Technologies and the Visual Arts: Cross-Disciplinary Exploration and Creation.

Latent See is an open-studio exhibition that has acted as a research and creation residency for four artists who have used emerging technologies such as machine intelligence, augmented reality and other exploratory oddities within the scope of their practice.

In an era of climate crisis, iceberg melt and big data GPUs which have been weaponized the manipulation of images, Latent See is an implicit vision into the spaces between the normal constraints of civilization and the entropic affordances offered by machine intelligence.

It is also the latent gaze of augmented vision, articulate machines, and generative flowers sprouting ideologies.

Each aspect suggests diverse trajectories through an imminent domain that is either utopia or oblivion.

Artists in Residence:
Alisha Piercy & Frances Adair Mckenzie
David Jhave Johnston
Jenny Lin

Additional Works and Publications by:
Adam Basanta
Anna Ridler
Casey Reas
Gregory Chatonsky
Mike Tyka

Vanishing Wave - Devendra Banhart

Vanishing Wave - Devendra Banhart

Following his travels to Japan shortly after the Tohoku earthquake, artist/musician Devendra Banhart produced a series of evocative drawings responding to the natural disaster and its effects on the people of Japan.

Vanishing Wave is the collection of these ink drawings accompanied by personal texts by Devendra Banhart, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Ryu Takahashi and Yusuke Nagai. A testament to the tide-like characteristics of memory, grief, and pain.

Portraits of Imaginary People - Mike Tyka

“Mike Tyka paints the portraits of people who don’t exist. The subjects of his ephemeral artwork are not born from any brush. Rather, they are sculpted -- roughly -- from the digital imagination of his computer’s neural network.” — Engadget

Making Pictures with Generative Adversarial Networks - Casey Reas

Making Pictures with Generative Adversarial Networks - Casey Reas

In this first non-technical introduction to emerging AI techniques, artist Casey Reas explores what it’s like to make pictures with generative adversarial networks (GANs), specifically deep convolutional generative adversarial networks (DCGANs). This text is imagined as a primer for readers interested in creative applications of AI technologies. Ideally, readers will explore the strategies of this emerging field as outlined, and remix them to suit their desires.

Machines Upon Every Flower

Machines Upon Every Flower

A book of art and poetry created by Artificial Intelligence. Can machines create art?

By feeding a single word into Deep Gimble A.I., a poem is generated. These poems are then interpreted by another Artificial Intelligence developed by Gregory Chatonsky, which produces artworks in response.
