Nature and Algorithm | 自然与算法

2016

-

“Nature and Algorithm” is a 100-day project. Every day for three months, Liu Chang randomly picked a screenshot of a geographic location or downloaded a landscape picture. She developed an algorithm by looking at the textures in the pictures, and with coding she generated images on the computer that visually imitate the original images. Two images from different worlds - Nature and Computer have similar visual effects. Juxtaposing them, Liu Chang sees the project both as a respect for the beauty of nature and technology, and as a question to the relationship between nature and AI.

《自然与算法》是一个一百天的实践项目。在三个月的时间里,刘唱每天从谷歌地图上随机选取一张地理截图或下载一张风景照片,通过观察其地理纹理,在脑海中联想一个相近的算法,通过编程生成一张和自然界图像视觉美感接近的电脑生成图像。两个图像来自不同的世界——自然界和电脑,但却具备相似的视觉效果。刘唱将它们并置在一起,既是对自然和科技所带来的两种不同美感的致敬,也是对自然和人工智能关系的提问。
