Impossible Bodies (2016)

Recurrent Neural Network, WebGL, dimension varies
Idea and code Przemyslaw Sanecki 2016

Computer model of cognition a place where a Cartesian alienation meets a theory of computation and where they strengthen each other. Although not identical, both frameworks share the same attitude towards a biological base as something inferior. This ideological context leads to a technocratic prudery.

A work 'Impossible Bodies' subverts a sexual abstinence of technology. It is a recurrent neural network (LSTM architecture) based art work. A massive amount of porn literature was used to inject desires into a zero-lust silicon body.

Short erotic poems are generated at regular intervals. The work uses a language model that reinforces latent elements shaping our everyday behaviour. It embraces a sexuality as a vital force and an inevitable constituent of a human intelligence.
