What are we saying when we take knife to foam? Is it the same as putting pen to paper? Are we exploring? Or iterating in order to find meaning within an infinite amount of options?

With AI tools becoming more accessible how can we look at GAN as a method of iteration? Is it possible that foam models are usually arbitrary iterations, and (perhaps like traditional foam models) a AI system allows for greater revision and relooking?

What's the difference between these AI models and a real foam model if both are post-rationalized? How do we approach an infinite foam babel?
