‘Machine learning + Art’ by Ameen Ul Insan
Project name: Machine learning + Art
Another experimental project ‘Machine learning dreams’. Creative freedom on obsessive colours of the universe. Addition to my ‘data+art’ collective. Inspecting beauty in data and depicting the complexity of computational thinking. Method of amalgamation of Nebula image library from NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope trained on StyleGAN model and experimenting 3d heightmaps on the same.
I started my career with no cultural history of art. Always pushing on technology hard for creating my designs/art. But also have the least respect for generative works made without the intent involving an artistic intent created by human beings. But any work of art with intent remains relevant irrespective of the medium as long it is appreciated by at least one man among the audience.
The idea of ‘storytelling’ in projections is one way forward in terms of content beyond the simple projection of images and shapes. There is the opportunity to engage people in stories beyond looking at a building and delve into history and stories and use the format with a little more narrative around histories. With this, it’s possible to take data from almost anything and use that to create an animation which is live.
