Data As Gossip

︎  Uses machine learning to inform the future of design tools and interface aesthetics.

︎  Machines today are constantly appropriating our visual culture to inform their learning models. As the industry shifts towards the templatization of design systems, how might we as creatives and AI start to build the next generation of design tools and interface guidelines.

︎  chair/CHer/ noun: a separate seat for one person, typically with a back and four legs—or is it??

︎  I generated over 10,000 chairs using different methods of image creation to examine how AI might challenge this definition. Using Fashion and Art as the foundation for this exploration, this project aims to reimagine the notion of “Form & Function” when Function is inferred differently by AI and Form is applied in unique and somewhat unrealistic ways.

Waiting For Face

︎  Uses emotion AI as a tool to find footage categorized by emotions within fictional contexts in film and tv.

︎  Identified discrepancies in emotion AI between inferred expressions and captured data. By taking user’s facial landmarks as input for search, applications of emotion AI are constrained within fictional contexts rather than used against unsuspecting people, risking inaccurate profiling.
