NFT ENERGY 9

”Ai ART Bizarre Reality“

 

  Works of art created by artificial intelligence sometimes present bizarre and surreal images that are incomprehensible to human perception. We've seen these works of art learn from existing images of reality, such as photographic images, and use unrealistic patterns, colors, and shapes to capture their unique and enigmatic essence. While these works may sometimes seem incomprehensible, they are the result of precise technical imagery calculated by a computer.  Future programming may be able to transform these bizarre images into something more natural, but conversely, the bizarre images created by artificial intelligence will be an important indicator of how artificial intelligence processes and creates images of reality.

 

  At NFT Energy 9, we will be showcasing a selection of works by contemporary AI artists who are active on the world stage, and we look forward to exploring different ways of looking at reality through the fragments of the world shown by AI.

Citrus Fruits

(Scotland)

Dio Aird is an artist and musician based in Scotland, UK, who focuses her practice on the exploration of surrealism and distortion through the prism of AI tools. Under the alias Belowsubconscious, Dio presents unorthodox visuals that encapsulate the intricacies of an illusive reality - traversing the subconscious and questioning the relationship between the human experience and the dream realm - from a feverish, nostalgic gaze.

After working across various traditional mediums of art-making for a number of years prior to her discovery of AI, Dio began incorporating AI tools into her practice in January of 2023. This experiment slowly grew into her prime way of working and eventually led her to exhibitions in Seoul, New York City, Miami, Tallinn and more.

Citrus Fruits

(Spain)

Dr Formalyst is a minimalist designer by day who turns into a moody visual artist by night.

Over his 25-year practice as an architect, designer, coder and design professor, he developed a keen interest in the psychology of aesthetics—why are our brains wired to perceive things as beautiful or intriguing? This led to the creation of Dr Formalyst alter ego, to explore how visual elements, in their pure form, impact our perception and emotions.

He works primarily in video, combining CGI and AI, transforming organic and human forms and movements them into expressions that border on abstraction. He has exhibited globally, and lives and works in Madrid,

Experimental New Worlds, a London-based visual artist and digital designer, blends philosophy and personal experience to explore the surreal and absurd. Inspired by the nature of consciousness and disordered sleep, their work probes the chaotic interplay between human and artificial intelligence.

Their short films highlight these contradictions, crafting jarring juxtapositions and improbable scenes - that leaves the viewer to ponder their meanings.

Simon Lavi

(France)

"Simon Raion's photographs seduce the viewers' gaze while, at the same time, distancing us (even as the figures in the frame fluctuate between succumbing to and fighting against the frame). Raion offers us oddly stagnant scenes that appear to be overcrowded sweatshops, or isolation wards, or shantytowns, or cluttered dorm rooms, or questionable massage parlors, or industrial wastes. But we have the uncomfortable sensation that we are being confronted by the ubiquitous but unseen Other in a Sartrean universe which is our own. An Other who refuses to be color-coded into gender-specific hues or interactions. How many pink-garbed people can pile into a pink car going nowhere, in images that partake equally of Edward Hopper, Hieronymus Bosch and Marx (Brothers)." Dr. Linda C. Ehrlich
