The installation uses Microsoft’s Azure Kinect device to track motion data of participants as…

AI Sculpting – The unpredictable strategies and outcomes of co-creation

Imagined as a tool to provide assistance to a conventional approach to sculpting, here an AI model is developed to seek out strategies that provide a constant improvement to how a given form is achieved. By feeding it with different tools, rules and rewards through reinforcement learning, the team steer the process revealing unpredictable outcomes.
