Sammanfattning

Brain Poetry (2013) is a poetry generator, which produces poetry from the user’s brain waves. The technology behind the generator is based on methods of computational creativity developed by researcher Jukka Toivanen. The artwork examines the combination of a human and a machine in a creative process.

Computational creativity means imitating, modeling and aiding creativity with a computer. The artwork deals with issues of creativity in science, as well as the opportunities of technology in this field. It questions the way we see art and science as opposites. The poem generated from the user’s brain waves varies individually. Brain Poetry proposes a new perspective to the human-machine relationship.

In Brain Poetry, the methods of cognitive science are introduced to art. The art-oriented project highlights the dialogue of the two fields. Cross-disciplinary discussions and joint artistic reflection of the Brains on Art collective form the background of the artwork.

Brains on Art (est. 2010), is a Helsinki-based art collective that combines the methods of both science and art in its installations. The collective consists of artist Kasperi Mäki-Reinikka, cognitive scientists Jukka Toivanen, Alexander Alafuzoff and Henri Kotkanen and electrical engineer Jari Torniainen. The collective has previously presented artworks at Espoo Kunsthalle’s Spring Festival (2013), at Warehouse Tech media art exhibition at L3 gallery in Jätkäsaari, Helsinki (2013) and at the international bookshop Arkadia (2013).
