A critique of contemporary AI art.

Not only we need cultural artifacts as a critique of industrialized use of Artificial Intelligence, but also a strict criteria in order to review contemporary art made with Machine Learning techniques… Those that argue against the potential for Computational Creativity believe that “simulating artistic techniques means also simulating human thinking and reasoning” (…) and  conclude that “this […]

Computational Aesthetics: the beholder needs eyes?

Computational aesthetics is a subfield of Artificial Intelligence, concerned with the computational assessment of beauty in domains of human creative expression  which bridges science and art. As an emerging and new interdisciplinary field, the seed of today’s Computational Aesthetics can be traced as far back as 1928, when American mathematician George David Birkhoff proposed the […]

Autonomous Artificial Artists.

The question of to what degree algorithms are tools, as opposed to active collaborators, is a very interesting debate in which the artists can contribute interesting reflections. Fanboys of Frankfurt School of critical theory may argue -in a clear romantic stance- that modern means of artistic production and reproduction like photography and video destroyed the […]
