Data-slime is a journey through a surreal landscape in which an AI writes social media posts. The visitor explores an imaginary landscape constructed from various kinds of data — 3D scanned bodies, generated surfaces, and my Facebook data tuned into abstract structures. It is a fictional data swamp that reorganizes data collected by social media platforms, changing it instead into a surreal space-time inhabited by an AI trained with a Recurrent Neural Network. As the viewer explores the swamp, the AI entity posts new comments trained to write based on my social media posts. The AI populates the landscape with new ideas and stories as the data-swamp continuously grows and updates as the AI model learns.
