SOFIA CRESPO

Is a media and net artist, living in Berlin. 

 

 

 

                            👾👾 microscopy, memetics, botany, neural nets 👾👾

 

 

Her work consists of different projects with artificial intelligence, computed image recognition, and neural networks. Her previous work includes Trauma Doll, an algorithm-powered doll that “suffers” from PTSD, anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues. As a coping mechanism, the doll creates collages using pattern recognition from online texts including memes, philosophical texts, and news headlines. Crespo is currently working on a project called Neural Zoo, which explores how creativity combines known elements in a specific way in order to create something entirely new. In her view, the creator, in this case, would be the algorithm itself, but with a human artist as its muse. “Isn’t all art made by humans an execution or reshaping of data absorbed through biological neurons?” Crespo asks. “How can we continue to inspire machines to create art for us as emotional human beings? ”Crespo is currently working on a project called Neural Zoo, which explores how creativity combines known elements in a specific way in order to create something entirely new.

This series of images is produced with machine learning, using a neural network. Images of new generated inter-species of plants and animals, that each are made of the recombined compontents of the input imagery.

In this process of generating new creatures, that don’t exist yet, she offers a perspective on how similar human creativity works: As well from creating something new by using existing input data from the real world.
