  • Blue Stratagem: Improvising on the Keyboard of Manifolds

    Helena Sarin

    This work is a homage to the composer John Zorn and is inspired by the title of his work Blue Stratagem in particular. Jazz is a common theme in my work: training generative (AI) models on my own analogue art has many similarities to jazz improvisation – free play, call and response, polyphony and subversion. The Stratagem reflects my artistic technique of subverting the AI model objective of digital correctness. Blue, as in “blue note,” is another reference to jazz improvisation, a sort of glitch at a different pitch from the standard or expected one. A few years ago, I had the idea of working with the programmatic grid of generated images to overcome the low resolution of the model output, but the grid structure also comes naturally when working with neural networks –after all, matrices are at the core of their architecture. Besides, the great painter Jack Whitten once suggested that the grid is the DNA of perception.
