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)

First, White nudges the algorithms to ‘sketch’ lines, blobs and shades that make a simple drawing.Then an AI algorithm trained on countless images of a physical object, let’s say an electric fan, transforms the initial ‘sketch’ into an abstract representation of the physical object i.e the electric fan. The abstract image, with a visual language of its own, may even be mistakenly deemed as ‘having explicit content’ by an online image analysis AI. Thus bringing up deep questions about the perception of objects, and the nature of perception itself.
