The Art of Our Machines & Minds: An Exploration in Poetic Computation is a compilation of various data and generative design pieces; offering the viewer an introspective opinion on the parallels between the machine and the human brain.
The development of The Art of Our Machines & Minds: An Exploration in Poetic Computation presents users with an introspective opinion on the various parallels that may exist between the human brain and the machine (computational technology).
Viewers are left to question how connected and augmented we are to the data and algorithms that we use to make sense of our world; through the noise we process, our vision, the data we collect from our biological selves & environment, and the art we can make.
Ultimately, leaving the viewer to question how we can share and use our machines and their programs to listen more, not only to the noise of our world, but to listen those who may not be able to be heard.
The production of this piece was completed through the use and practice of data collection, data manipulation, writing of algorithms to produce graphics, and data sonification.
Specific tools and hardware used to achieve these results/methods were done with:
