In his latest work Manolis D. Lemos examines the possibility of a new shared emotional expression through blurry visions. These hybrid works depict images that have been created through an artificial intelligence tool, designed and “trained” by the artist in collaboration with a team of scientists in the MIT artificial intelligence laboratory, then reinterpreted by the artist in a continuing cycle.

These works have been made using a cyclical process that the artist has started developing since 2018, together with Constantinos Daskalakis (computer scientist and mathematician) and his team at the MIT Computer Science and AI Lab, which involves – among others – the creation of a GAN (Generative Adversarial Network) and a Deep Neural Network. It is a gradual growth of an AI that has been trained with drawings, photographs and other learning material that he has produced and curated.
