Jack Latham inputted photographs of flowers which he had collected during lockdown into an algorithm. The algorithm then performed a process of ‘unsupervised deep-learning’ in order to identify and reimagine details from these images in order to generate something new. Well-known critical writing on photography was also inputted into the algorithm, enabling it to produce re-imaginings of art philosophy. These texts, together with the images of flowers, form a book that is generated entirely by an entity that cannot see nor fathom what it is that it is producing. Co-published with Images Vevey, on the occasion of the exhibition ‘Beggar’s Honey – Chapter 1: Latent Bloom’ at Festival Images Vevey, September 2020. The project ‘Beggar’s Honey’ was awarded the Heidi.news Prize (Reportage) by Grand Prix Images Vevey 2019/2020
