But for the Wisdom

This series was created from 7000+ photographs of locally picked flowers during the Covid lockdown, 2020. Each image is a multiple exposure blend of up to 200 images fed into focus stacking software used in scientific imaging and high end macro still life. The outcome, composition and colour is unknown until the algorithm completes the stack. The title is taken from this quote ‘We are gods now but for the wisdom’ by Eric Weinstein where he discusses the extraordinary progress made by humanity in technology and artificial intelligence but how this has not been matched with an increase in wisdom. I remain optimistic that the future of AI will contain a kernel of humanity and that like these images there will continute to be a beauty in the collaboration between us and the machines.
