Spray Painted Galvanized Steel Pipe, Projection on Wood

At the outset, I was interested in translating pareidolic interpretations of image into physical environments. We evolved pareidolia to find patterns in our surroundings, a process that also occurs with convolutional neural networks (CNN), programs that create interpretative images based on the look of the input.
Uniting human and computer visions, I used a CNN to produce a video projection from process shots of an original, pareidolically inspired painting. This projection was matched with a physical texture generated from the first painting image.
Full Circle conceptualizes a future where technology enables immediate, physical expression of thought. How might these first thoughts produce something entirely alien, but also expose deeper empirical qualities of our metaphysical processes?
