NATURAL LANGUAGE PROCESSING PAINTINGS   WIP

I wrote a 700-page autobiography to train a neural network with. I rearranged the generated text into poems. I then painted those poems. I am currently writing an essay I will publish alongside the series. 

Below are some paintings from the final series. Each one of them refer to a classical artistic subject-matter, blended with a reference to technology, e.g. Portrait of my mother playing a free-to-play puzzle game ; Cats and dogs in the automated warehouse ; The 10x kiss, etc.
