“Generated Man”
Dec 20th, 2015 by Red Lion

On Friday I had a tutorial with Tom and he introduced this to me:

This project looks at how we are presented on the internet. It collects information from a person and summarizes all the information into keywords, and then uses Google search engine to generate his personality by using the presentation of a set of 3D models from 3D Warehouse.

Almost all search engines have the intelligence of remembering what you’re interested in and offers you something you might be interested in next time (I’ll have to say that this system helped me with finding interesting video games, for example I was recommended Professor Layton when I searched for information about Ace Attorney, and Professor Layton turned out to be one of my favourite games in the end). This project is turning this system the other way round.

When artificial intelligence is combined with the gigantic database on the internet, it can be very useful. Yes they can also be very fast and they do calculations much faster than humans. But, artificial intelligence is artificial. They are only lines of codes. Never will it surpass human brains. That’s why sometimes they come up with ridiculous results and make people want to do this:


Also, I think this project is kind of a sarcasm towards stereotyping people…

And do have a look at this artist’s other projects. They might seem pretty ridiculous, but also very interesting.

Entering fictional worlds!
Dec 4th, 2015 by Red Lion

I found this video a few weeks ago on Facebook and I found it on Youtube and now I’m putting it here:

It’s awesome to imagine oneself in a fictional world (in this video, it’s inside paintings). I know this sounds a bit childish, but making a short video like this is really fun. In fact, sometimes we need childish minds to be more creative. Think about the most creative and talented game developer Miyamoto. He’s over 60 and he still sits with young people and play games with them (see Smosh on YouTube).

Anyway, back to fictional worlds. I have chose this module called Conceptualising Landscape, and the most important part in this module is landscape imaginary. Fictional world imaginaries are not only important in arts, but also in engineering (to me, landscape designing is more like engineering than art). Imagining ourselves in fictional worlds can act as a “knock on our heads” and give us a new perspective of the world! As an artist, I dare to create fiction! I dare to imagine!
