COLLABORATION
acrylic on canvas, augmented reality, 200 x 190 cm
2020





The image on which the painting is based, was developed in collaboration with artificial intellingence.  Starting data set was  sixsteen photos with unrelated themes.  I crossbreed these images, edited their genes and let them to have o lot of children. These were crossbreeded over and over.

The phantasmagoric outcomes had overwhelmed me. I could not make any sence of the relations between mutated images.  I decided to search for something in the picture. For light.

I breed images over and over to get to the one which met my unarticulated  expectation. The only navigation in this collaborative project between me and AI was intuition.

I decided to participate in this process with
my own creativity, with my own interpretation of the generated image.

I love the richness of associations induced.  There are unfamiliar object arranged in the strange way. They are beautiful and maybe scarz, thez might be alive or alreadz dead. Fragmented and reconfigured reality is beyond human understanding. 

The image did not make much sence at its ilusionarry space. While painting I had to make an interpretation suited to my intuitive understanding of the image.

I see this project as collaboration. I was assisted by machine. I chose traditional medium for its  necessity to find the human interpretation through the painting process of the intuitively found image.


 


The paintig has a virtual element displayed in augmented reality. It is distorted 3d models growing in some parts out og the painting. The flat image turns into  an organic living form occupying its territory inheriting its DNA through colors.
