“Flower” presents a series of distorted flower images which have still been recognised as “flower” by a computer vision*.
Between art and AI technology, Shinseungback Kimyonghun’s work presents the connection between machine perception algorithms, machine creativity and machine art. The pieces of the series look as if they were choreographed, yet the question may arise, if the use of this technology will eventually enhance or hack Humanity itself.
*This project uses the Label Detection of Google Cloud Vision API. The images are selected when “flower” is the first in the result label list and its score is higher than “0.9.
