Introspections (2019) Sending a blank canvas to a machine learning model meant to process photos returns … a blank image. But repeat the action over and over and the model starts to introduce its own artifacts. It’s subtle at first, but ultimately the model devours the image, creating an abstract visualization of its own inner state and architecture. An introspection made visible, the piece materializes a glimpse into the opaque, high-dimensional vector spaces in which AI makes its meaning.
