Artefact 1

Artefact 1 explores artistic co-creation and is the outcome of an improvisational drawing collaboration with a custom robotic unit linked to a recurrent neural net trained on my drawings. The contrasting colors of lines denote those marks made by the machine and my own hand.  This work is the latest in an ongoing series of Drawing Operations begun in 2014.

"What is ownership? What is work?... How can we move from a production system in which human labor is merely a disposable means ...to a process that depends on and expands connective relationships, mutual respect, the dignity of work, the fullest possible development of the human subject?"

- Adrienne Rich,
Arts of the Possible
