In Database Paintings, each image is created by aggregating pixels from freely available images of artworks, sourced from the permanent collections of The Tate, Guggenheim, and Reina Sofia Museums. Using custom software and machine learning techniques, groupings of pixels are “mosaicked” and collaged from the original artworks onto a novel virtual canvas, creating images that articulate a space between recognizability and emergence.
