Beschreibung Picture: film "un'emozione per sempre 2.0" (2018). AI-actress (synthetic Ornella Muti).
In September 2018 the EMMY-winning journalist Katerina Cizek invited me to a #MIT conference about Co-creation, a discussion about co-creation of artists, journalists and musicians with collective and non-human entities. Katerina Cizek noticed my work because I co-created – in her eyes - with Artificial Intelligence. This was the first time that I took notice that there is a theoretic discourse about co-creation.
In the history of art the concept of co-creation, the human creation combined with non-human creation is not new, even if it was not called and described as co-creation. The usage of hazard and the usage of hazard-based creations were parts of the broad discourse to fight for modernity and avant guard in art.
Yes, for some projects I worked with co-creation techniques and cooperated with co-creation techniques, this tools are NOT artificial intelligence tools.
When I work with AI then I use them as tools, intelligent tools but just tools. In this way my citation found a place in Katerina Cizeks MIT study “Collective Wisdom”.
At this picture you can see a work done by AI: It is the body of #KendallJenner with the face of 80’s star #OrnellaMuti. The AI did this “mapping” work, and the goal was a realistic look, nothing more.
Another study about the question “who gets the credit” is here, by an MIT team of Ziv Epstein, Sydney Levine, David G. Rand, Iyad Rahwan
