Chloe Kelly
Chloe Kelly is an artist and writer practicing on Cadgial land. She is currently interested in the semantic, aesthetic and material patterns in our meaning-making practices and uses generative technology to try make sense and nonsense of them. Her practice engages in generative technology and meaning making, using the interaction of these forces to create moments of unlearning, and spaces for speculative performances of being, doing and making. She coordinated the 2020 UNSWeetened journal and writes essays, which live on her hardrive for now.

My work, 'Leftover Valentines', is a melted array of the aesthetic and semantic patterns of Valentine's day. Trained on images of jewellery, teddy bears, chocolates and roses, the work is a set of printed AI generated images. The images would be sold as both digital and physical prints. The physical prints would be printed on scented card and have a curated generated love letter printed on the back.

This work lingers in the constructed aesthetic and semantic meanings of love, lust and gifting. In the confusing mixtures of bodies, openings, lovers, words, objects and shapes, the original meaning of these gifts are lost, creating space for the viewer to speculate new meanings and non-meanings of the valentine gift and the love letter. In this, I hope they can speculate, imagine and revel in new performances of desire, wanting and love.
