“- More dada! Expanded dada! Infinite Richter through algorithmic manipulation!

– But wait! Algorithms are against the spirit of dada, aren’t they?

– Well, you cannot go against the spirit of dada. Because going against the spirit of dada is in the spirit of dada too.”

The artist uploaded the work Untitled, 1961 by Hans Richter to one of the most advanced image recognition artificial intelligence services: The Wolfram Language Image Identification Project. The software recognized this work to be a “cat”. The work is a witty take on computer vision and on the existence of images in the age of algorithms.

Harm van den Dorpel is a Berlin-based conceptual artist. His broad practice includes the creation of sculpture, collage, computer animation, computer generated graphics and interaction design. He is regarded a key figure in Post-Internet art. In his work he investigates how algorithms can analyse digital archives and guide the artist in aesthetic decision taking, leading to a symbiosis of man-machine art creation. His ultimate goal is to reveal the reasoning structure of his own consciousness, and his implicit associations and assumptions. More info
