– Joe Gilmore

H is the fifth in a series of artist’s books by graphic designer Joe Gilmore. The book presents an archive of black and white photographs, each identified by one of the 26 letters of the alphabet. The images were created using text-to-image artificial intelligence. Presented as a kind of encyclopaedia of natural forms, H questions our notions of representation and reality. The text prompts used to generate these photographs consisted of descriptions of things which do not exist, and often combined lists of unrelated words alongside features and forms derived from different disciplines (architecture, biology, geology, mathematics).
