Latent Sheep Dreaming

Latent Sheep Dreaming is a physical-digital installation exploring cohesion and conflict between human and machine agents in generative processes. With a stylus-based console, users sketch sheep captured by the machine and reimagined through rule- and neural network-based generative algorithms. The machine's imagination process is projected on a display wall and physicalized via a pen plotter, documenting imagined shapes that emerge from user and machine collaboration.
