Each enigmatic ant balances between abstract humor and digital subculture

Art is just a thought. Often enough, I find, an artist wanders off and writes crazy pages about the solution to the optical illusion of contemporary art. Frequent fallacies continue to thrive, including the use of correlation to capture causal relationships.

“The reader should be warned, however, that not all intuitions developed in spaces of low dimensionality will generalize to spaces of many dimensions.”

Christopher M. Bishop

In the second decade of the 20th century, abstraction became the holy grail of modern art.

Roberta Smith

What kinds of abstractions are formed by deep networks, and how can we reason with these abstractions and combine them?

Very abstract art acknowledges its own failure to accomplish anything meaningful: that just shows visitors how clueless abstract art is. That's the definition of fun art.

Neomodernism acknowledges the trickiness of such situations, ideas have value as art, fantastic is hallucinatory.
