Collaborating with Adam Harvey on Exposing.AI, exploring face recognition datasets. Formerly titled MegaPixels, this project features a search engine where people can discover if their Flickr photos were included in face recognition datasets. Our work has been featured in Nature, the Financial Times, the State of AI Report 2020, a US GAO report, and on the front page of the New York Times – twice.
Sonifications of Gun Violence was the soundtrack to Hito Steyerl's Drill at the Park Avenue Armory in New York City. We sonified mass shooting data to compose melodies, which were then performed by synthesist Bethany Barrett and the Yale University Precision Marching Band. We have made sheet music available to any marching band that is interested in performing this material.
EVOL presents Hardcore vol. 4, a collection of rarities. Includes "SampleRNN Trax", 7+ hours of remixes of EVOL's GRM Trax done by an angry neural network, plus a 26 page conversation we had about it all.
Hito Steyerl's "Socialsim" shows at K21 Düsseldorf as part of a survey of her work, for which we contributed neural snakecharming and a rendition of Ennio Morricone's Rabbia e Tarantella. Her video pieces "This is the Future" and "Leonardo's Submarine" showed at the Venice Biennale 2019, and were created using a neural video system we developed together for political pyromancy. Earlier, Power Plants showed at the Serpentine Gallery in London.
The Auctioneer and Siren were included in NeurIPS Creativity Workshop, 2018, offering a concise self-portrait of AI through neural audio.
Hito Steyerl's The City of Broken Windows is presented at the Castello di Rivoli in Turin, Italy, in the Manica Lunga gallery, for which we used machine learning to recreate the sound of breaking glass.
Recorded live in 2019, this is a document of Magisphere's descent to the ocean floor to locate the troubled underwater research platform Theta-5. Barely any light reaches these benthic depths, where the station sits mysteriously empty, its consoles still glowing with the last commands entered before the crew disappeared. Following a trail of clues, Magisphere descend further past luminous jellyfish into the caverns of an undersea volcano, where they uncover the final secret of Theta-5.
