‘Latent Bloom’ attempts to visualise the organic nature of algorithms and how they morph and adapt depending on their input.
Jack Latham inputted photographs of flowers which he had collected during lockdown into an algorithm. The algorithm then performed a process of ‘unsupervised deep-learning’ in order to identify and reimagine details from these images in order to generate something new.
Well-known critical writing on photography was also inputted into the algorithm, enabling it to produce re-imaginings of art philosophy.
These texts, together with the images of flowers, form a book that is generated entirely by an entity that cannot see nor fathom what it is that it is producing.
