A new alphabet naturally emerged when we trained our GANs and generated raw materials as part of our Potential Herbariums project.
With letters like no other alphabet, we call them « latent botanist writings ». We use our alphabet to find shelters for the texts we select, or to explore new horizons.

« This work gave AI a new role in creating new alphabets from old herbarium and it is quite a novel approach as an AI artwork. In addition, the concept of ‘Laten Botanist’ and the way it is expressed, attract interest and attention as a highly complete work. »
