The Flavor Machine – images

“The Flavor Machine” is a series of multimedia artworks encompassing an audio-visual installation, a mobile application, and a collection of digital images. What ties all of these pieces together is the utilization of an artificial intelligence model. Model was trained to generate images based on a combination of single malt whiskey flavors. These flavors includes: fruity, floral, sweet, spicy and smoky.

The model draws from a repository of over 2,000 artistic and synesthetic visions inspired by selected flavors. The algorithm identified unique and characteristic features for each of the flavors.

Presented series is a set of digital images illustrating the algorithm’s operation. Below, there is also a video recording demonstrating the functionality of an interactive application. App allows users to create their own images. You can find the application here.

“The Flavor Machine” won the main prize in the “Where Next? Kreatorzy Zmian” competition, organized by the Glenfiddich brand in 2023.
