Limited Special Edition A.I. / LOQI Bag
On the occasion of the release of Slanted Magazine #37—AI a limited LOQI bag with an artwork by neural artist Sofia Crespo has been published. It is limited to 200 pieces and available exclusively in the Slanted Shop.
Neural Zoo is an exploration of the ways creativity works: the recombination of known elements into novel ones. These images resemble nature, but it is an imagined nature that has been rearranged. Our visual cortex recognizes the textures, but the brain is simultaneously aware that those elements don’t belong to any arrangement of reality that it has access to.
Computer vision and machine learning could offer a bridge between us and a speculative “natures” that can only be accessed through high levels of parallel computation. Starting from the level of our known reality, we could ultimately be digitizing cognitive processes and utilizing them to feed new inputs into the biological world, which feeds back into a cycle. Routines in artificial neural networks become a tool for creation, one that allows for new experiences of the familiar.
Can art be reduced to the remapping of data absorbed through sensory processes?
The bag is water resistant and made of polyester. Of course it is STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® certified.
