Ideogenetic Machine

Ideogenetic Machine

Ideogenetic Machine is an interactive installation that incorporates images of visitors to a gallery into an algorithmically generated comic book. The comic is created live through computer vision technology and custom software, using photos of the visitors and a database of drawings the artist has created. Since the beginning of 2011, the artist has been adding to a database of drawings that freely interpret daily news items. Through imaginative speculation, each news event is used as material to imagine a future either Dystopian or Utopian in tone.
