Filter Trouve assists an artist in creating and selecting image filters. The artist first selects what image they’d like to find a filter for. The system generates a set of 24 filters that the user can try out on their image. The user selects the filters they like, and the system generates a new set of 24 filters based on the user’s preferences.
‘The Object Trouve (Found Object) movement in modern art gained notoriety by incorporating everyday objects (often literally found discarded in the streets) into visual art and sculpture pieces… This analogy with Object Trouve methods is most pronounced in the field of evolutionary art, where artistic images (or more precisely the image generating processes) are evolved, e.g. Here, the software initially leads the user, through its choices of processes to employ and the way in which it combines and/or mutates those processes as the session progresses. However, as the user begins to exert their aesthetic preferences through their choices, the software should enable them to quickly turn their found processes into a final form.’
