How do we engage with the rich diversity of the natural world in virtual, digital space?
This project is part of an ongoing exploration of artificial life using deep learning to generate insects as well as their names and anatomical descriptions. The intention is to celebrate the natural diversity of insectile life, not through the precise, sterile digital reproduction of it, but in the form of new specimens that are digital natives.
Version 2.1 takes the form of an online virtual exhibition of AI-generated insect specimens from the 2.0 generation, as well as their generated names and anatomical descriptions.
Version 1.0 of 'Artificial Remnants' began as a physical exhibition of the very first AI-generated insect specimens, these primitive creatures were first exhibited as 3D printed sculptures at Arts Santa Mònica, Barcelona (Spain).
