The Machine (2019) The Machine explores the boundaries of human creativity and authorship through AI generated artworks derived from handmade originals. This piece utilizes a human/AI co-creative system to engage in a process of making which explores the potential of machine learning to transform artistic practice. This piece utilizes Conditional Generative Adversarial Networks(cGAN), Deep Convolutional Generative Adversarial Networks(DCGAN), and Multi-Layer Recurrent Neural Networks. This artwork and the accompanying manifesto and thesis research examines the theoretical and critical implications of the future of creative work. It offers a glimpse of a future where human and artificial intelligence creative expression evolve separately and symbiotically. The Machine challenges the viewer to consider who and/or what is capable of creative expression, authorship, and how we participate in shaping our coexistence with the emergent technologies interweaving our lives.
