Yo-Plotter

In Anya's words...

"Named after the famous depiction of 'Yo-Picasso (I, Picasso)' by Pablo Picasso, Yo-Plotter uses the tool of machine learning and robotics to produce a commentary on the use of these technologies in art and design practice.

"In this work, public tweets about ‘AI art’ are being analysed by a machine learning process that detects the overall sentiment of the discussion. If the average sentiment of the tweets about AI art is positive, the plotter robot attempts to draw Picasso sketches onto a cloth canvas. If they are found to be negative, the cloth is sprayed with water, ruining the part of the drawing the robot plotter is working on.

"The result is a comment on both the role of these technologies in art practice, and the larger evolving cultural discussion around them - Picasso himself famously stated that computers were useless. Development based on “Presto“ by Thibault Brevet"
