Mario Klingemann is an artist working with code, AI and data.
His interests are in constant evolution, involving artificial intelligence, deep learning, generative and evolutionary art, glitch art, data classification and visualization or robotic installations. If there is one common denominator it is his desire to understand, question and subvert the inner workings of systems of any kind. He also has a deep interest in human perception and aesthetic theory.
Mario Klingemann is currently showing on the Media Wall at London’s Photographer’s Gallery with a piece called ‘Neurography’ – a term used to describe his process of working with neural networks – complex machine learning algorithms. He creates ‘cameraless photography’ by training his neural networks on a variety of sources including photographs of electron-microscopes, machine parts, and instagram. Once set-up, his systems autonomously generate his images – producing up to 5000 images per night – with Klingemann understood alternatively as author, teacher, curator or editor, and the images further blurring the relationship between human perception and computer creation.
