Machine Imagined Artworks, 2013 by Shardcore is based on a dataset of art recently released by the Tate. After analysing the 70,000 descriptions of art records, Shardcore became interested in the more subjective and ambiguous categories of art. These art pieces require human experience to document them with more detailed descriptions. The artist used to this to calculate a near-infinite number of combinations that unlock yet-to-be-made art:
"It struck me that these are not only representations of existing artworks, but actually the vocabulary and structure required to describe new, as yet un-made, artworks."
The results are 88,577,208,667,721,179,117,706,090,119,168 descriptions of possible artworks that can be explored one at a time here.
