Since its inception in 2018, the DAP has grown into two exhibitions and a third exhibition called "Birds, Ox, Castle" upcoming in 2024.
What if we can interact with the hidden dimensions of a text? The Data Art Project (DAP) illuminates the universal language of art through text-to-image translation in collaboration with natural language processing software. Though the data provides a partial blueprint for the artwork, the artist's imagination weaves the stylization, rhythm, and tone. The role of the artist, inspiration, restraint, consciousness, and subconsciousness also emerge; they interrogate and provoke the reality of meaning-making and art creation. These artworks become forms of meditation as they reveal to the viewers an essence obscured by layers of human constructs, enabling the observer to see the inner dimensions of a text from a different perspective, challenging the limitations of our previous awareness.
So far, I've created two projects based on the DAP method. Check out the Exhibitions section for more information.
Next project: "Birds, Ox, Castle"
I am translating the Lectures on the Ten Oxherding Pictures by Yamada Mumon, the Conference of the Birds by Faridud-din Attar, and the Interior Castle by Santa Teresa de Avila into artistic works.
