‘Swim’ takes the core notion of Klee’s “taking the line for a walk” and brings it further into the realm of the digital, expanding upon the premise of Arturo Herrera’s work ‘Walk’, through the use of neural networks to generate and guide the meandering, inquisitative lines that meditate upon aquatic subjects. The notion of the hand is dually captured as an endlessly animated, virtual lines that trace and retrace the virtual process of neural doodling and as a physical re-enactment through the use of plotting machine that precisely draws a physical counterpart.
This work was collected by the Buffalo AKG Art Museum and is now part of the museum’s permanent collection.
