Adam Chin's practice involves using Machine Learning neural networks trained on databases of real photography to render images. By augmenting traditional photography with neural networks, he expands on the information contained in a photograph, and ultimately asks, "What is a photograph?"

Curatorial Statement

"Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic." - Arthur C. Clarke

In 1962, an IBM computer defeated a master checkers player, and the term "machine learning" was born shortly afterward. Machine learning employs statistically-guided algorithms-long chains of computer commands-operating on input data sets to make predictions: to be, in effect, creative, if we relinquish human claims to that word. Now, sixty-odd years later, the algorithms are seemingly omnipresent, omniscient and omnipotent.They operate our entire infrastructure, and even, to a concerning extent, how we think (or, considering current politics, don't think, but react as if programmed). Remember the cargo cultists, those pre-industrial Melanesians who, during World War II, constructed life-sized straw cargo airplanes in order to induce, via sympathetic magic, industrial manna to waft gently down from the skies with parachutes; are we less credulous or prone to magical thinking?
