(A) Eye - AI ... and the Future of Visual Culture.

 

The future of visual art is being significantly impacted by artificial intelligence (AI) in various ways. AI technologies are revolutionizing how artists create, display and interact with art. The integration of artificial intelligence (AI) into visual culture has significant implications for both future of art and the ethical considerations surrounding its use. It is a dynamic and multifaceted relationship as it provides insight into the intersection of technology, creativity and societal values. Visual art created using AI spans a wide range of styles and techniques and demonstrate the diversity and creativity that AI brings to the world of visual art. AI is revolutionizing the visual art by offering new possibilities for creativity, accessibility, preservation and engagement. Understanding AI’s impact on artistic expression helps us to navigate ethical, aesthetic, and philosophical implications. By considering these intersections, we uncover how AI reshapes cultural narratives, challenges traditional artistic processes, and opens new avenues for expression, fostering critical discourse and innovation. While challenges and ethical considerations accompany the integration of AI in the art world, its potential to enhance and expand artistic expression is undeniable.

As the influence of AI is so new, we don't yet know where the journey will take us. That's exciting: we are all in an experimental space with so many uncertainties. This is where we need to share our initial ideas and first experiences.
