A Close-up of a Vase with Flowers in it

GROUP PROJEC
T / 2020

A Close-up of a Vase with Flowers in it looks at artificial intelligence - A study of its capabilities. A study of its limitations. An appreciation of its efforts to paint a better world, one caption at a time. The exhibition draws attention to the censorship of information through a side-by-side display of images and their A.I generated captions.
        Through this innocent filter that is the A.I, firearms become baseball bats, wounds become hotdogs and the allure of the human body becomes a teddy bear.
        Something sinister this way comes, rising straight out of the software's mountain of otherwise amusing inadequacies. Is this act of censorship merely an extended display of the software failure or a conscientious decision made by the developers?
        Perhaps there's no need to get too fixated on that - maybe it is best to just enjoy these curious image-and-text combos for what they are: A curious peek into the incomplete workings of the A.I.
