Welcome to the new Tech+Art Podcast!
Join us on this adventure as we meet & speak with: artists, makers, researchers, designers and creators from all background and fields.
Our objective is to understand their creative perspective, dive into their workflow & creative process, be inspired by new ideas and their work – and stay one step ahead of cutting-edge industry developments.
[ 24:10 ] – […] and I think all those generative systems are the same. Because, whenever you run the system again, if you take a different random value, if you take a different noise field, you have something that looks really similar in terms of the aesthetics and flow of the piece but the actual output will be slightly different. So you can identify the systems because they produce diversity of output that looks the same, but it’s not exactly the same. And I think that’s the key point here. If we’re able to create generative systems using whatever code that we have that allows the user or the customer to find themselves into whatever the system is making, you have something that makes a lot of sense to them. It’s really abstract, I understand.
[ 26:42 ] – […] Instantly you build value – because the system, the generative system – is a blackbox that allows you to input something that makes sense to you (the picture for example). And then it reflects, the final product it reflects, what the system has been doing […]
[ 26:58 ] – So that’s my main philosophy, my main line of work is: ‘How do we create those systems that will allow the user or the customer to just be part of the creative process?’, because there is one input that is open for whatever stuff you want to put into the system.
[ 27:32 ] – You do not want to play with a toy, you want to play with your toy. And as soon as you do this, whatever you’ve been dreaming of becomes unique and personalized to you. So that’s the core of the generative system for me. We can now switch from a world where everything has mass produced to appeal to everybody, but no I say we can mass design something that will be meaningful to you, but not yo your neighbour because it’s gonna be taking some information about you – that you will be willingly be giving to the system. So that’s where I think we can use all this generative background that exists here to create these systems and I think we’re going to see more of this, especially in terms of entertainment where we have generative fiction, we have generative sounds, we have a lot of stuff that is starting to be generated on the fly – we just need to tweak the inputs so that it makes more sense to you.
