The circuit boards are particularly interesting to me, in part due to the tension between the foreign language of the circuit, the highly mathematical and logical aesthetic nature that makes no sense to the untrained human eye, and the beautify of the final product. At one time the boards were designed by humans, large, bulky, and expensive to manufacture. However, thanks to machine learning, we have taught the computer how to design itself in the most efficient manner. In essence, the computer is designing itself. Through the act of painting the circuit board, I am exploring some of the earliest concept in the field of painting; the idea that through the act of copying you can arrive at some understanding of the subject. While not learning the function of the machine, I am learning the machine aesthetic.
