Sparrow Read is a software engineer, traditional artist (encaustic wax medium) and digital artist. Finding a synergy between technology and art, Sparrow explores the latent space of Generative Adversarial Network (GAN) deep learning algorithms and other digital manipulation techniques to create artworks that are a collaboration between human and machine. Most recently she has been creating “programmable art”, where owners of individual elements of an artwork can control the rendering of a master image to create an artwork that changes over time based on their selections. Her current focus: allowing control of some elements of the master artwork to be controlled by external data, such as weather, Tweet sentiments and market prices.
