I am not quite sure what to think. As most of you know, I have a passion for the visual. From photography to painting to landscape to sculpture to architecture to nature, the visual and its interpretation consumes a fair bit of my cerebral processing. On a separate level, how to contextualize and to think about the visual, and its aesthetics including style is an incredibly intriguing thing to ponder. But what do I make of these images created by Google AI? I think that I begin by questioning whether or not a human brain can even contextualize an artificial brain. If I assume that it is true, what can we learn about our interpretation of human art through our attempt to understand this type of non human art? Is it art? A thought perhaps left to too much coffee or wine.
