Davey Whitcraft investigates perception, world-making and notions of the natural through artistic collaborations with synthetic intelligence.

His work excavates the known world in search of the sublime and presents novel visual constructions which reveal the intricacies and nuances of human perception. Davey seeks not to replicate the natural world, but to supplement it by leveraging the infinite possibilities of light, alternative geometries and physical properties afforded by the digital realm.

In Looking at the Sky, he combines video, photography and custom software to explore abstractions of natural landscapes, sky and sea – revealing a unique mode of native technological creativity.

The video pieces and large scale colorfield works explore a new mode of working with landscape. The works propose a world that operates with different physics, impossible geometries and alternate geo- planetary arrangements. Working with parameters collaboratively created by Davey and a General Adversarial Network (GAN), the results transfigure current physical principles to produce landscape photographs with spherically arranged horizons and mesmerizing video seascapes.
