Uncanny Dialogue

Each and everyone’s handwriting is unique – revealing much more than just letters. Handwriting may be seen as a  commonplace, but still, something that reflects a certain experience, a style and knowledge, individual to the owner. By giving a machine its own handwriting, artificial intelligence and the human are intertwined, leading to the questioning of its definition. The work presented here is based on the question whether a computer can acquire its own style, drawing upon observation and artistry. If a handwriting can reveal several things about its owner, what assumptions can we make about a machine that has its unique handwriting?
