Artificial Muse

It started with

One picture.

The entire project started with one black and white picture taken by Roman Lipski during his time in Los Angeles. The photograph shows a typical LA scenery: a city by night, a winding street, some trees, a house in a distance, the horizon, one moment in time. 


A new way of seeing the world

"The paradox is that the new is new. In this sense one cannot buy or sell a new new. One can only develop it..." (Prof. Dr. Sabine Fischer)

Like the invention of the camera helped artists explore new perspectives, artificial intelligence, used in this manner, can ultimately introduce a new way of seeing the world. Roman Lipski and the art collective YQP and Birds on Mars are furthering the discourse around artificially creative systems at a point in time where the interactivity between man and machine is becoming commonplace.
