Predictive Art Bot (2015...)
Prototype / Ongoing research: A Twitter account publishes on a daily basis the titles of potential artworks of the future as news headlines. It functions by virtue of a program that combines the headlines of articles recently published on websites specializing in digital art and hactivism. This basic robot randomly generates permutations ad infinitum. It effortlessly predicts an infinite number of likely, possible, almost existent or even nonsensical proposals all of which are in line with the jargon currently in use. In this absurd manner, the Predictive Art Bot works towards the generation of an exhaustive series of all the possible automatic artistic responses and trends that may arise in the future. This algorithm’s constant production of “reflex art” that takes the form of simple utterances means that it, in turn, continually induces mental projections generated by this stimulus.
