Too Wired To Live

Joshua Stanton


Joshua works with deep neural network systems (artificial intelligence learning algorithms which replicate, to an extent, the function of neurons in the human brain – strengthening or weakening pathways as they learn). The networks he uses are involved with computer vision and include Google’s “deep dream” algorithm, as well as others such as deep style and generative networks. He trains these AI networks on photo archives and feeds them input to respond to. This process and its products act as a platform for experimentation. Joshua responds to the outputs of these systems with mixed media paintings. Through this cyclical process of feedback, he is able to explore the potential for creative collaboration between human and artificial intelligence.

This artwork formed part of his 2017 Degree Show and featured in our Best of Scottish Art Schools Graduate Show.
