What started as a simple machine learning experiment quickly turned into a full book. The Absence of Reason brings forth Monsters is an exploration of how old and
new techniques in the field of art can be combined to create something new, how and if an algorithm understands a data set consisting of fine art and how it deals with said data. A machine learning model was trained with Francisco de Goya’s Desastres de la Guerra and used to generate a new series of images, which were then set in relation to the original titles.
