Of Images and Alt Texts¬†uses Raymond Williams’ same list of keywords on top of optimization techniques to translate those words into appropriated animated images to be displayed on its LED panels.
Representing the dream of an Artificially Intelligent model, the artwork is the space where information becomes language, where the AI machine, imitating humans, assigns shapes and colours to words and concepts.
