looking around – immaterial data to 3D

Example of immaterial data being translated to 3D form – Artist Pierre Huyghe’s UUmwelt – cast from a 3D print of a visualisation of human thought as interpreted by neural net AI.

Pierre Huyghe: UUmwelt (Deep Image Reconstruction)

“… a set of elementary components, building blocks of ideas, were selected for a speculative situation. … They were given as images or descriptions to be imagined by a subject. As the person imagined these components, the brain activity was captured by an fMRI scanner and a deep neural network then attempted to reconstruct these thoughts, or ‘mental images’.”

This helps us think about the forms our audio might take once bio-printed.
