High Experiments in Automation of Routine Tasks in Art (HEARTA)



in cooperation with Steven A. Bjornson



With the help of several data sets, a deep learning algorithm is trained to create paintings that meet my formal aesthetic requirements. The digital paintings generated by the AI are then posted on HEARTAs Instagram. HEARTA expands the definition of contemporary painting through digital technologies and thoroughly explores the human-machine relationship by questioning the concept of authenticity in art and the role of the artist in society. The work shows how AI can expand and enrich the creative process.
