Predictive Art Bot, 2018, multimedia installation
The artist group Disnovation creates work that is on the cutting edge of art, research and hacking. Their work calls into question the dominant conception of innovation, which is primarily focused on profit maximization. Disnovation’s research often results in projects that bring alternative stories into the world, thereby stimulating debate. The Predictive Art Bot is an algorithm that generates new artistic concepts from the newsfeed of various news and social media websites. At times, these artistic concepts are almost indistinguishable from ‘real’ or existing news items.
