Algorithm Can Transform Your Memories into Works of Art

London-based tech studio Random Quark has developed an algorithm that can turn a person’s memories into digital paintings. Scanning the brain of a person while recalling an emotional moment, they identify the type of emotion the individual experienced. For example, if more activity is occurring in the left hemisphere, the feeling is positive.

Applying the Geneva Emotional Wheel they can further categorize “what kind of happy” you are. Even if several memories trigger similar emotions (and translate to similar colours), the EEG data is never the same so the pattern/painting is always unique to the memory. See more images from “Mindswarms” below.

    Hello, just to let you know, the Mindswarms project is clearly ripping off the beautiful work of Andreas Nicolas Fischer and his Schwarm projects that he’s been doing for years.

    His work is beautiful and should be respected, when New Media is such a small community, we should be looking out for each other.

      True. I would also shout out for Casey Reas which did this in processing. Yo.

        I find it hard to believe they couldn’t find another way to visualise their results.

        agree with all of this 100%, but: http://anf.nu/schwarm-2k14/

        I know it’s very close. Im a big fan of Andreas. The remix doesn’t need to be good… nor does it even need to be a remix. The reason I feel comfortable saying this is these quotes by Jacque Fresco: ” A child never writes his own alphabet”

        “An eskimo never dreams of walking on a palm fringed beach. Unless he’s seen it in movies or books or something about the beach. It is not possible for any human being to create a frame of reference without experience”

        “You can’t exceed your environment. If you give a cannibal a watch he doesn’t look at it and say “the gears are not precise, they are ten thousandth of an inch off” he doesn’t say that. It’s impossible. That’s what I mean by you can’t exceed your environment. You can’t exceed what you’ve been exposed to.”

        The reason their remix is so “poor” – although that’s a subjective interpretation , and dependent on your taste, is because their frames of reference are not wide enough. Whether or not they’re aware of that, it’s not their fault. If they want a produce a close looking remix, why not? My view is: if it heavily resonates with your taste then it’s yours. Why? Because the quotes above go for Andreas too. He didn’t generate those from a vacuum and I bet you he either has a wide frame of reference and lots of people he copied from or one person. It’s an ever-evolving chain. Not a one-time occurrence. Therefore, it isn’t any one person we should point out and say “He’s a ripoff!” – it’s more how creativity actually works.

        “A seed does not grow. It needs soil, and water, and radiant energy” – Fresco

        In the end what matters is whether it resonates with ones taste.
