Artist designs a machine-learning assisted sculpture, then casts it in the powdered remains of the computer used to design it

Ben Snell's sculpture Dio was created by training a machine learning system on a corpus of 1,000+ sculptures, tweaked in some unspecified way by Snell, who then 3D printed a mold based on the final shape: he filled the mold with a resin impregnated with the computer that ran the algorithm, which Snell had ground to powder. “I consider myself, not the computer, to be the artist,” he says. But he also talks enthusiastically about the agency of his algorithms, saying that “Dio began by tryin...

The Overdue Successes of Older Black Artists

After decades of indifference from the art world, many African American artists in their 70s and 80s are finally garnering the attention, bidders, invitations to lectures, panels and shows—and, of course, income—they deserve. These overdue successes result in mixed reactions, and rightly so.
