Themed upon the topic of ‘AI MEETS REALITY’ this year, both the works submitted as well as thoughts on the subject have been quite interesting indeed. We have a few voices from our 20 lucky shortlist artists for you :

Steve Marais : A.I. MEETS REALITY, A MATCH MADE IN HELL // BY STEVE MARAIS “The romance between Artificial Intelligence and Reality is, in my experience, doomed. While AI has made strides in enhancing creative processes, it struggles to replicate the depth and authenticity of human expression. Let’s imagine AI and Reality both swipe right for each other.

Their initial chats are flirty, but not filthy (AI doesn’t allow that), and they plan a date. AI arrives at the café ready for everything, with meticulous conversation topics and data-driven icebreakers. Reality, however, shows up with humor and spontaneity, and an unpredictability that soon freaks out AI. Prompts go awry, despite AI’s best efforts to predict Reality’s preferences.

The date quickly takes a turn for the worse. AI’s calculated approach to romance clashes with Reality’s desire for passion, leading to awkward silences and misread cues. At the heart of AI’s rendezvous with Reality is its ability to assist in generating content, from music and art, to legal jargon and code. While AI streamlines the creative process, it often falls short of capturing Reality’s creative essence, rooted in personal experiences, emotions, and cultural influences. AI is also pretty boring. Reality tries to spice things up a bit, but suggestive language is strictly forbidden. Sensitive topics are blocked, aimed at protecting Reality from ‘inappropriate material’.

AI’s ecosystem is developed for ‘responsible use and inclusivity’, often at the cost of creativity and spontaneity. As the date sours, Reality becomes concerned about safety. Is AI potentially creepy? The question of AI’s danger is complex. While AI itself isn’t inherently dangerous, its development, deployment, and regulation pose potential risks. Mass job displacement due to AI-driven automation is a significant concern, particularly for workers in creative, administrative or routine-based jobs, potentially exacerbating catastrophic socioeconomic inequality. Data privacy is also a huge concern; AI relies on vast data mining.

As the evening comes to an end, it becomes increasingly clear that AI and Reality are, sadly, fundamentally incompatible. (ChatGPT actually assisted in writing the above.)” 


Monica Menez : “I began an exciting chapter about a year ago: I started to explore artificial intelligence, and particularly, images generated with AI. I set out to use this innovative technology to expand my own visual language.

As an artist with a minimalist style, I searched for ways in which AI could aid me in bringing my visions to life in new and unexpected ways. I got mixed results at first. Some of the early images I generated with AI were far from what I would call minimalist imagery. They were either overladen or failed to achieve the feeling of simplicity and clarity I had been aiming for.

However, with a little patience and relentless fine-tuning, the AI started to create works that were similar in style to mine. Meanwhile, AI has become a part of my creative process I wouldn’t want to do without. It enables me to push boundaries and take my artistic vision to levels which had seemed impossible until now.”

Sibesiech : “In today’s world, where digital and real worlds are blending, the combination of artificial intelligence (AI) and traditional crafts is creating innovative art forms that change how we see everyday things. A striking example is the use of advanced AI by Midjourney to represent food in a style reminiscent of crochet crafts.

These images, from burgers to tomatoes, not only celebrate the diversity of our food but also showcase the creative potential of combining human and technological efforts. By merging AI with the art of crochet, we receive visual masterpieces that define a new aesthetic: tasteful and stylish.

They encourage us to think about the relationship between technology and craftsmanship, as well as between artificiality and authenticity. These works demonstrate how AI can push creative boundaries without losing the warmth of handmade art.”


Grit Wolany : “‘Buy myself flowers’ explores new visual languages of generative AI. Is it possible to find new interesting aesthetics besides the stereotypical AI look?”

“I am a visual artist exploring the area of generative AI based on curiosity, serendipity and playfulness. It’s all about experiments, exploration and observation. I develop my own techniques, processes and feedback loops in ‘collaboration’ with the algorithms and thus find unexpected subjects, details, tranquility, and beauty in the data. Everything in my life is source material.”
