Architecture of the Latent Space 5:2024.5


Patrick Lichty. Juried Artist

Artist Statement

The Architectures of the Latent Space works are experiments in attempting to force abstraction by manipulating the ‘blind spots’ in AI. By seeking the spaces between the criteria in an AI platform’s translator, the resulting images exhibit a novel aesthetic but are not resolved. By wrestling with the representational space between text and media, this project attempts to subvert a space bent on concrete visual representation. What happens is a series of happy accidents similar to the outputs of artists from groups like DADA or Fluxus.,
