Feed the art machine

ANU is spruiking an interesting concept from the School of Art:

Art Machine will see machines transform text, video and photos submitted online into original ‘visual structures’ and digital displays. Exhibition curator Christopher Fulham, from the ANU School of Art, said that Art Machine will present the submitted digital content in a range of ways.

“The submitted files will be scrambled together and presented on projectors, as 3D visual sculptures and on LCD screens,” he said. “The diverse visual installation will also run online.

“All of the machines in Art Machine have been coded to act on people’s submissions in particular ways. For example, images will be turned into various forms of pixels and visualisations. The content providers aren’t aware of how the machines will operate and the machine-coders aren’t aware of the specific content their machines will operate on.

I have just fed the machine this morning’s poster board picture.

I’m looking forward to seeing what it makes of it.
