(10) ID0LS w/ FutureDeluxe

ID0LS is a series exploring Digital Folklore through proceduralism & primitive machine learning.
The work explores how cultural archetypes are imagined and stories told and retold over time.

An automated system imagines a myriad of new procedural folk-art idols which are then fed in as the dataset of a simple machine learning model. The ML model then passes on its memory and interpretation of the Idols as retellings of the cultural tradition.
