Rule 30: Cellular Computation In Blue And Yellow

How do structures emerge in our model of a quantified, computational universe? From galaxies down to cells, atoms and strings. How does anything complicated get produced in nature? The artwork “Cellular Computation In Blue And Yellow” uses the cellular automata mechanism discovered by Stephen Wolfram in the 1980s found across physics, chemistry and biology to […]

90×200

90×200 is an installation that dramatizes the emotions of frustration, anxiety, and delirium through mechanical movements.

Shanshui-DaDA: AI assists human creator in drawing Chinese ink wash landscape painting

“Shanshui-DaDA” is an interactive installation based on artificial intelligence. When participants scribble lines and sketch the landscape, the AI will help to create a Chinese Shanshui painting. “Shanshui-DaDA” is trained with “CycleGAN” and wrapped with a web-based interface, where participants can sketch on and later see the real-time generated paintings. If the participant sketches the […]
