She Stopped and Whispered – Susan Vera Clarke


‘She Stopped and Whispered’ has been created in response to an investigation into how Machine Learning technologies are attempting to help Coral Reef restoration and conservation. Much like humans, machine learning techniques use the fundamental laws of recognising and learning from colour, texture, shape and form. For this particular project I collaborated with Fernando Pérez-García, a researcher in medical imaging and machine learning at UCL. Using open-access coral reef datasets, Fernando trained a generative machine learning model that hallucinates images of non-existing corals. From these images I have interpreted my own set of images using the same principals.

About the Artist

Susan is an East London based Printmaker who makes work that responds to narratives including Science, Environment and Ritual. These themes blend between each other with some playing a more critical role than others however, they’re all inherently linked together. Susan is fascinated by the environment around her, not just locally but globally, and this becomes the birthplace of her work. The complexity of life is the catalyst for a chain of thoughts which culminate in the end print and through that process is a ritualist series of events. The production of the print negates the style and tone of voice, and it is through this, Susan’s practice feels more scientific. Her methodic but blind approach to making these marks, akin to a scientist.
