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: Deep Meditations
Artist: Memo Akten
From: Turkey
Medium: 4 channel video

Akten exposes an AI algorithm to two sets of images: photographs representing natural and scientific categories (beaches, nebulae, etc), and images of some 20,000 artworks from the Google Art Archive. Another AI algorithm is exposed to soundtracks: Religious chants and rituals sourced from YouTube. The two AIs then work in tandem to create an incredible audio-visual experience. The viewer is confronted with many moments of unexpected surprises at the connections that the machine finds between various human semantic fields
