These artists joint works give life to a performance that aims to reflect on one of the human archetypal concepts: the inspiring muse. The trio reflects on the semantic nature of the muse based on traditional art history models, creating an images’ dataset able to inspire an artificial intelligence to produce art.
This project explores how artificial intelligence can collaborate with the human being in creative processes. The work synthesizes the relationship between human and artificial: the algorithm learns from the dataset and generates new outcomes that are then reproduced in a pictorial key during a performance in which human and artificial work side by side, in a context unified by a music-set. An ancient and universal concept like that of the muse is re-read considering the relationship that can be established between human creativity and imagination and the artificial ones, giving the machine the opportunity to be an active collaborator in the definition of a new way of thinking about art and its language.
