The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Algorithm
This artwork is being shown at the Nature Morte Gallery in New Delhi, as part of the AI Art show called Gradient Descent, curated by 64/1.
Its a series of 20 prints on archival paper, each 12×8 inch.
The title is a reference to one of Rembrandt’s earliest, and most well known paintings, ‘The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicholas Tulp’. That painting was done at a time of troubled fascination with medical technology, and today we are in a parallel time of troubled fascination with Artificial Intelligence, debating about topics like how much of human should a machine be exposed to. I create this piece by exposing the machine to the hardware of the human body, by curating a dataset of about 60,000 images of human surgical dissections, and let a machine creates its own imaginations of it.
