Machine Learning & Drawing

Untitled 

(collaboration with Ben Heim) 

This durational performance piece has turned the act drawing into a musical instrument. I have trained a neural net to recognise shapes that I commonly make so that when a shape is recognised it triggers a sound to played in real time. I have worked with composer Ben Heim to create a track that simultaneously both played and noted down. 


Fall of the House of Usher 

Training a neural net using pix2pix on my own drawings, I have created an animation of the Fall of House of Usher.
