The series subverts the traditional method of art production where a creative idea is conceived by a human and is then rendered using technology, instead the series represents a true human-machine collaboration. In addition to this series Reben will also present five paintings from 2018/2019 and a neon work entitled I Am A Bad Situation. Reben will be dropping an NFT in conjunction with the exhibition on the Superrare platform during the show. All NFTs minted by Gazell.io are certified by Verisart.
The process for creating the ‘“AI Am I?” works starts with a series of carefully curated “start texts” that are fed into a text generation AI called GPT (one of the largest and most advanced artificial neural networks), which then outputs text including a description of an imaginary artwork, along with analysis of that artwork and other supporting text.
The project highlights the fact that today everyday life always involves some kind of AI; the natural and artificial worlds are beginning to blur. The series represents how we can implement AI for positive and creative uses, how computational creativity can augment human creativity. “AI Am I?” provides a view into a future where machine learning algorithms are used to generate artwork and novel ideas.
