I Enjoyed the Parts in Your Mind
Penplotter consisting of three motors, rubber band, two arduinos, raspberry pi, penholder, black marker. Steel frame, wooden mdf board.

This drawing bot consists of a rudimentary neural network that is fed by the constant data–stream of anarchistic message board 4-chan. Out of this data the algorithm seeks out sentences on the subject of artificial intelligence. Thereafter, the bot analyses the original sequencing of neighbouring words (or groups of words) and subsequently generates chains of words that are related by statistical probability (as seen on the screens). The created sentences are based on the associations' probabilities of each word used on 4-chan.

When writing down these sentences the bot tries to generate handwriting. (thanks to RNN with TensorFlow). The result are absurdist sentences which are written down in an expressionistic drawing style. The piece investigates the subcultures of the message board 4-chan and questions what an AI can learn the underbelly of the internet.

'I Enjoyed the Parts in Your Mind' 'I'd taken it from the source' 'Download Data about your Rights'
