Intending to explore the idea of the personification of Artificial Intelligence, ‘Computer Says, And Then Draws’ is a 50 page publication materialising the collaborative efforts between two very ‘narrow’ artificial intelligences. One process draws from a database of texts by ‘ Arthur I. Miller’ to form a selection of phrases and questions, thereafter the second process forms and creates imagery from said text. This is then amalgamated into a simplistic form of dots, to emulate a flip-disc display, an homage to the binary nature of the computer ‘thought’ process.
Initially this project aimed to look at how computers dreamt- my starting point leant towards being more satirical and funny, attempting to take ‘error messages’ that would sharply juxtapose against vibrant desktop backgrounds, but throughout heavy research into General Adversarial Networks, the idea of computer sentience and personality became more intriguing.
