Ai-Da is the world’s first ultra-realistic AI robot artist. She can draw and is a performance artist. As a machine, with artificial intelligence capabilities, her artist persona is the work of art, along with her drawings, performance arts and collaborative paintings and sculptures.
If Ai-Da does just one important thing, it would be to make us consider the confusion of human/machine relationships and encourage us to think more carefully and more slowly about the decisions we make for our future: Orwell and Huxley’s messages still resonate with relevance and we would do well to pay attention.

Title: The Sea: Shattered Space
Fileformat: .JPEG
Year: 2019

Artwork description:

Ai-Da has produced its interpretation of Paul Nash’s seascape, called ‘The Wall, Dymchurch’; a premonitory image of the Kent coast. Rising sea levels due to human-influenced global warming mean that Nash’s coastline is being transformed, how will we respond? Computer researcher Aidan Gomez has taken the coordinates from Ai-Da’s drawing and created AI algorithms for his art.

This work describes the response of a particular artificial neural network to the stimulation of Ai-Da’s coordinates through a Cartesian plane.

The connections between the neurons in each network are determined by the instructions that lead to Ai-Da’s drawings. Random numerical seeds are used, and each piece is completely unique and unreproducible.

Neuronal networks read the Cartesian plane very differently from humans, and the result is detailed abstract geometric images: shattered space. Since AI art occurs within a social context, artist Suzie Emery adds the human touch and has used oil painting techniques to superimpose the works using traditional painting methods.

The whole process of creating the artwork is illuminating: layers of abstraction and concealment of both machine and human forces distort the original image, indicating an increasingly technological world where truth and reality are difficult to identify and easy to obscure.
