AI / Machine Learning generated images. 2020.
These images were created by training the machine on photos I took of dandelions at the moment of their brief transition from yellow flower to white seed head. The yellow flower petals, drying-up, barely there any more. The seeds not quite fully formed, but beginning to assert themselves. All so delicate, but doing exactly what they were designed to do – disperse themselves.
Perhaps this is a metaphor for our current moment – a fragile world blowing apart, but ready with the seeds for a new future.
This is part of the Learning Nature series.
More images coming soon.
