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: Imaginary Landscape
Artist: Nao Tokui
Medium: 3 channel video
One AI algorithm stitches together three images from Google Street View that, together, looks like one continuous scene. At the same time, another AI that has been exposed to sound-image correspondence from a massive amount of video data, creates an original imagined soundtrack for this imaginary landscape. The work creates meaning by its unpredictable juxtapositions, paying tribute to virtualisation of reality and the rampant look-alikeness of places characteristic of globalism.
