Asemic Languages
Characters are a means of visual communication and recording a language. Civilizations throughout the world have created various characters, which convey their culture and history. This project focuses purely on the form of the characters rather than their meaning. The characters have been learned by artificial intelligence (AI) not for their meaning but for their shape and patterns. AI has created and drawn lines that look like characters but do not have any meaning.
This work was publicized at the international art festival “Aichi Triennale 2016”. It was implemented by collecting handwritten artist statement or description of work of an extremely international group of 10 participating artists.
By learning handwriting with one writer in each language, artificial intelligence collected information on the shapes of each character system, as well the idiosyncrasies of each writer, of a AI, to possess a plotter.
The generated lines are written as if they meant something important, also look like trying to deceive.

形骸化する言語
文字は言語における視覚的な伝達及び記録の手段であり、世界中の文明が様々な文字を生み出し、それぞれの文化や歴史を伝えてきた。本作では文字の意味ではなく、その形状のみに注目し、人工知能によって文字の意味を読み取ることなく、形状とそのパターンだけを学習し、意味をなさないが文字のように見える線を生成し書き連ねていく。
本作は国際芸術祭「あいちトリエンナーレ2016」で発表され、国際色豊かな10名の参加作家から手書きのアーティストステイトメントや作品解説を収集することで実現された。
一言語につき一人の筆記者から手書き文字を学習することで、人工知能はそれぞれの文字体系の形状に加え、筆記者の手癖をも学び取り、プロッターに乗り移る。
生成された線は、あたかも重要な意味を持つ言葉であるかのように筆記され、見るものを欺こうとしているようにも見える。
