Stejara Dinulescu x SPADE-COCO
Doodle Jump is a series of studies using a GAN (Generative Adversarial Neural Network) to produce aesthetic output. My interest was in collaborating with a computational agent in creating artwork that was interesting to look at as a composition in itself, as well as observing how the types of input that I provided to the algorithm changed the output. The GAN that authored the output is called SPADE-COCO, created by NVlabs, via the web platform RunwayML, an environment for easy use of Machine Learning (). Inputs, shown on the left of each of the Doodle Jump explorations, were all created by me in four ways: hand-drawn, digitally-drawn, coded using Processing, and drawn by an Axidraw plotter robot (with inputs created via generative computation).
