Hello! I wanted to jot down some ideas and update on some things I’ve been working on.
I have done some sketches to try to tease out what this thing’s head might look like if I was using gold leaf:
Still not sure how to get a model for the head, I would like it to be AI generated in at least one way. I was thinking there are several options:
- Find a true AI generative 3D model builder
- Generate an AI image and find an AI that can turn that into a model: https://www.louisbouchard.ai/ganverse3d/ https://developer.nvidia.com/nvidia-kaolin – This one looks doable!
- Generate AI image(s) and turn them into a 3D model manually
- Generate AI image(s) and turn them into a section of a 3D model manually, then use Fusion 360 to generatively build the rest of the model – could be amazing, probs will look messy and crap
Need to keep in mind the message and themes of the piece(s):
How automation and algorithms are used to create a Facade of Objectivity or False Objectivity￼
“The employment of new technologies that reflect and reproduce existing inequities but that are promoted and perceived as more objective or progressive than the discriminatory systems of a previous era” – Ruha Benjamin
Hope: could I build an alternative statue of the flip side of the coin? A social justice bot here to ‘centuries of racial demons’
