(UN)CONSCIOUS AI


Dream-like images created by a generative adversarial network get interpreted by another AI, creating the appearance that artificial intelligence is attempting to make sense out of its own dreaming. Artificial intelligence is humorously subjected to an almost psychoanalytic process, exposing a hidden bias that reveals itself in its inclination to continuously produce similar descriptions of diverse abstract images. The work searches for the hidden and the irrational in seemingly rational computational processes and examines interpretation as a way of creating meaning when immediate comprehension fails.
