Dandelions

AI / Machine Learning generated images. 2020.

These images were created by training the machine on photos I took of dandelions at the moment of their brief transition from yellow flower to white seed head. The yellow flower petals, drying-up, barely there any more. The seeds not quite fully formed, but beginning to assert themselves. All so delicate, but doing exactly what they were designed to do – disperse themselves.

Perhaps this is a metaphor for our current moment – a fragile world blowing apart, but ready with the seeds for a new future.

This is part of the Learning Nature series.

More images coming soon.
