  • SUM OF ITS PARTS
    SUM OF ITS PARTSUsing machine learning to objectively produce audio/visual representations of a collection of artist’s and designer’s approaches. Neural networks fed with archives of each practitioner’s work were tasked with generating something new based off of what was inputted. The produced animations depict the neural network’s dreams influenced by the portfolio it studied. Each animation was scored in collaboration with the artist in a way that they felt audibly represented their work. The virtual exhibi
  • LALGRGALA–RSL3A…LIN
    LALGRGALA–RSL3A…LINUsing Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) to create new furniture using every image from the IKEA catalogue. Results were built and rendered using 3D modelling software, much like the rest of the IKEA catalogue. A second neural network decided the name of each product by learning every existing name in the catalogue and suggesting new ones. A visualisation of the cognitive difference in machine vs organic thought. AI assistance (Siri, Alexa) is too often boiled down to subservient slaves. Wha

  • Attrition Photobook
    Attrition PhotobookOn a three day trip to seaside town Folkestone Finn Davies, Elliot Elder and Charlie Hood were tasked with producing a publication documenting our brief stay in the town while simultaneously drawing a parallel with a predetermined text. Hugo Grotius's 'Mare Liberum' describes through metaphors a nondescript process that we interpreted the poem to be attrition, defined as the process of reducing something's strength or effectiveness through sustained attack or pressure. We decided to document t
