An art exhibition, which showcases artworks created by artificial intelligence (AI) is scheduled to be held at the Arioso Gallery in Seongnam-dong, Ulsan.
The exhibition, namely ‘Unfamiliar Familiarity‘ will be held until Tuesday, November 23, 2021. This exhibition has been organized by 138M Studio, branded by UNIST faculty startup, Core[dot] Today.
In this exhibition, you can see 22 works drawn through AI. The theme of this exhibition is the Taehwagang National Garden. The photographs of Taehwagang River, which are familiar to Ulsan citizens, have been recreated as “unfamiliar” works of art by AI that acquired the painting techniques of famous artists, such as Van Gogh, Klimt, and Mondrian.
Engineers at Core[dot] Today used a convolutional neural network, called `q for the exhibition. This neural network performs operations with 138 million parameters. The brand name ‘138M Studio’ was also named because it was created as a result of this many operations.
These works show the creativity of artificial intelligence while also attempting to introduce the closer and more familiar artificial intelligence to citizens as works on the theme of Ulsan’s familiar environment.
