#Love Apparatus  Fabrizio Poltronieri
April 30 @ 9:00 am - May 13 @ 9:00 pmFree
Located at the Eastgate Entrance, Highcross Shopping Centre @apparatus_love Can apparatus love? We don’t know for sure, but surely they can say things about love! “#LoveApparatus” (@apparatus_love) is an art installation created for the ART-AI FESTIVAL, taking place Leicester between 30 April and 13 May 2018. #LoveApparatus delivers generative love text aphorisms that will be projected in Highcross Shopping Centre, Leicester, and posted to the twitter account “@apparatus_love”. Combining scrapping techniques, neural networks – using machine learning, an artificial intelligence technique – and a social network account, this art project delivers every 3 minutes a novel ‘love quote’ for its followers. The public can interact with the apparatus by tweeting using the hashtag “#LoveApparatus”. All public contributions are analysed by the algorithm to identify its level of ‘loveliness’, and the ones with a high score are fed into the network to generate future love quotes.
