AG1-8Warpi2 (6) (2019) Images generated using AttnGAN and processed iteratively using optical flow algorithms

Purposed and repurposed machine learning algorithms used to decompose each other’s effect through analysis and perpetual re-synthesis form the basis of this series. Recursive processes occur throughout the series as a means to break concepts and imagery down to artifacts(or data) that approach interchangeability, allowing for their reconstitution to show a more profound intersection; to breakdown dichotomy. 
The point of departure here, as for most of my work tends to be a question concerning what could be an empathetic reaction or response from an AI? How can these contemporary systems of computer intelligence play a role in their fictive interpretations of us?
