Title: Reference Metadata
Author: Gustavs Lociks
Technology: Large size digital print graphics, audio installation
The Reference Metadata artwork consists of large size digital print artworks titled Dissociative Paradigms I - IV and an audio installation called Intermission. Using various artificial intelligence tools that are based on neural networks, the artist, through his works, explores and depicts the alienation of commercial culture in the thickets of information.
The audio installation plays back a generated sound from ad audio tracks created by artificial Intelligence. The WaveGAN model modified by MIT researcher Yue Ou, designed primarily for continuous generations of natural sounds, has been used as the basis for artificial intelligence.
Visual artwork series is created using web archives of images found by the author, as symbols of compositions that were further passed through artificial intelligence processing tools, that can enlarge images by adding missing details.
