Machine Auguries: Toledo

Toledo, Ohio

Toledo Museum of Art

Alexandra Daisy Ginsberg creates art that explores our relationships with nature and technology. Her latest installation, Alexandra Daisy Ginsberg – Machine Auguries: Toledo, explores this relationship by simulating a dawn chorus using generative adversarial networks – two neural networks that work in a ‘call and response’ and are sometimes used to create lifelike but fake images.

Making these sorts of installations happen are no small feat. The artist partnered with a variety of technical consultants from Europe and the United States including Great Lakes Sound, Engineers Ltd, LightLab and Aurelia Sound Works, amongst others.
