Unsupervised, because the set up is tagged, is a serious profession second. ‘To point out at MoMA is considered one of my largest motivations in life,’ describes the Turkish-born, LA-based media artist. However numerically talking, it’s removed from probably the most formidable. In 2019, he’d used 100 million images of New York Metropolis, discovered publicly on social networks, to create a 30-minute cinematic piece.

The next yr, his contribution to the Venice Structure Biennale, Sense of Area, concerned a collaboration with neuroscientist Taylor Kuhn to develop machine-learning algorithms based mostly on 70 terabytes of MRI knowledge, then used it to think about the event of mind circuitry all through the human lifespan.
