Jake Elwes


Speaker Biography

Jake is an artist and creative computer programmer living and working in London. He graduated with a BA from the Slade School of Art in 2017 and has exhibited in the UK and internationally. In his art Jake engages with both the history and tropes of fine art and the possibilities and consequences of digital code.

His most recent projects explore how we interact with and conceive of technology and Artificial Intelligence, exploring the technology, philosophy and ethics behind it, asking questions such as what happens to artistic agency when working with artificial intelligence? What does it mean to collaborate creatively with an unpredictable algorithm, learning from data sets unsupervised, and how does this fit into a history of conceptual and systems art?
