The Library of Nonhuman Books

The Library of Nonhuman Books, 2019-ongoing. An autonomous art system centered around a custom-designed and coded reading machine which uses Artificial Intelligence to make new books from existing publications through a process by which it reads, interprets and 'illuminates' (or more simply, illustrates) any physical book placed below its dual-cameras, in real-time.

Premiered at xCoax 2019, Milan, Italy, and exhibited at ELO2019 Cork, Ireland, ICCV, Seoul, Korea, and NeurIPS Vancouver, Canada.

A Throw of the Dice Will Never Abolish Chance

Athrowofthedicewillneverabolishchance.com, 2015-2018, explores the artistic legacy of Stephane Mallarme's 1897 poem "Un Coup de Des Jamais N'Abolira' le Hasard" through Google's reCaptcha program. As the reCaptchas are indecipherable by OCR, 'A throw' generates poetry for non-human readers-a metaphysical search for meaning by the kinds of Artificial Intelligence programs currently in development by corporations such as Google.
