Communication 01 (2019), as part of Scratching the Surface

Jun 16, 2022 - Tobias Groot

For my graduation project at the Gerrit
Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam, I started
working with computational processes
and AI in order to create new work.
I started with writing diary entries, and
ended up processing these through an
algorithm that started to write its own
texts.
From here a narrative started to form
about a digital entity, a transient AI, that is
trying to get a grasp on human’s physical
and emotional experiences.
I started working with different
computational processes, starting a
collaboration with a machine.
The project ended up being presented
as an installation, ranging from physical
prints to projections on glass, where all
the works seem to exist between the
physical and virtual.
