Machine Hallucinations: California Landscape Studies is based on a dataset of approximately 155 million of nature images collected by Refik Anadol Studio. In the first part, using StyleGAN2-ADA to capture the machine’s “hallucinations” of California landscapes and colors in a multi-dimensional space, Anadol and his team trained a unique AI model with subsets of the collected image archive. Each image in the series displays a cluster of chosen “hallucinations,” and Anadol makes selections from countless serendipitous allusions to landscape images occurring in “the machine-mind.” After the training, when idle and unsupervised, the AI generates abstracted landscapes, constructing new aesthetic visuals and color combinations based on the dataset and through unique lines drawn by algorithmic connections.
