A project exploring a dynamic grid that manipulates the existing alphabet into new randomly generated forms. Each letter was given a different grid depending on its shape, which was then used as input to a program that rearranged it. The experiment began with the letter ‘B’ and later expanded to the entire English capital alphabet. Machine Learning was integrated into the code to train the computer to recognise and differentiate between letters and grids. Once a letter is presented to the computer, the related grid is applied to the canvas. The results bring up questions regarding how machines perceive symbols as arbitrary signs until humans imbue them with meaning. The outcomes were published in a collection of 26 booklets — each exploring the program’s outputs to a given letter.
