Artificial Intelligence Art: Parenting a new genre

The first-ever show of art created by Artificial Intelligence just opened at the Nature Morte Gallery in New Delhi. Presented by Aparajita Jain, Gradient Descent brings together seven pioneering international artists who have adopted a radically new aesthetic practice: Their final artwork is actually created by an AI algorithm. The show is curated by Raghava KK and Karthik Kalyanaraman, founders of 64/1, a curatorial collective that focuses on building a public understanding of how artists and AI can come together to create art for the post-human age (By Madhu Kapparath)

Title: The Fall of the House of Usher
Artist: Anna Ridler
From: United Kingdom
Medium: Video and 12 illustrations

Anna draws sketches of stills from the first four minutes of The Fall of the House of Usher, a 1928 avant-grade silent film. She then teaches the AI algorithm to transform them into actual film frames. The rest of the film is then auto-generated by the AI from just the drawings. As the film progresses beyond the first four minutes, the interaction between Anna’s drawing and the AI-generated movie frame breaks down into fascinating visual effects paralleling the storyline of the original film.
