BY BADEN PAILTHORPE
Baden Pailthorpe’s One and Three PCs (2019) is a computational installation comprised of the world’s most beautiful computer attempting to produce and recognise an image of itself. Using a form of image generating AI called a Deep Convolutional General Adversarial Network (DCGAN), this installation playfully calls into question the meaning of language, symbols and imagery in the context of machine intelligence.
