Machine-generated works exploring theft and perceived authenticity.
Dirty code is used to steal images from oftenminimal.com, process.memco.co and other parts of the internet. New hybrid works are created using a database of grotesque objects + various manipulation and filtering techniques.
Initial results are almost always random but parameters are manually tweaked to create a final result – because humans have egos and computers have been known to generate shit if left entirely to their own devices.
On bad days, all code-generated imagery is thrown in the bin and something is knocked up in Photoshop by a randomly-selected immigrant. Captions are made up on the spot or stolen from kids. There is presently no AI, or much other intelligence.
