Next Steps

Object Int’l —
  1. The Red Earth Project is an ongoing artistic, interdisciplinary study centred on prose reflections and machine translation, drawing attention to the precarious status of non-western cultural heritage, knowledge systems and practices in the increasingly dominant Western systems of data, virtual architectures and AI technologies. A critical study of machine learning (AI), this research asks how alternative cosmologies can be better represented within virtual architectures powered by probabalistic computation.

This image catalyses the conceptual exploration of natural algorithmic forms. From tributaries of a river, to the structures of trees and the patterning in rocks introduce Red Earth, which moved this theoretical study and opened a my written poetic response.

Thoughts moved through non-linear time and space, the virtual, existing everywhere and nowhere, the immateriality and abstraction of a coordinate.
