This blog features generative ‘art’, that I have creating using various computing techniques that I hope to write about if I get the time and headspace. The basic approach typically is this: I take hard work done by others (machine learning models) and enter some random inputs that I’ve scrapped from sources that are also the hard work of others (dbpedia/wikipedia etc). Sometimes I remember to add a bit of code to save them to Instagram.
Did I create this art? Did the computer? Did the programmers and Wikipedia authors? I’ve no idea. If I did create them, and it can be considered my work, then I suppose they are all licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License. But, did I create them? Is it art? What even is consciousness?
Below is the instagram feed.
