Coevolution of Human-Machine Creativity: Incorporating the Visual Output of Artificial Intelligence into Traditional Art Making
The visual output from these AI generated paintings were incorporated back into abstract artworks of my own creation using traditional means; and these could subsequently be used as input to the DCGAN algorithm. When implemented iteratively, this procedure can lead to coevolution of human-machine creativity, as the artistic output of each entity (human and AI) influence each other.

L’art numérique, un art contemporain? / L’arte digitale, un’arte contemporanea?

Art Tease offers a chance to exhibit this artwork via an original distance-based real...
Emersion de l’émersiologie
En refusant le réductionnisme même méthodologique, l’émersiologie, comme écologie corporelle, étudie la langue du corps vivant dans l’éveil de nouvelles sensations jusqu’à la conscience sans que celle-ci l’ait désiré volontairement ni recherché délibérément dans une performance.

Introduction to the Fiftieth Anniversary Edition of Expanded Cinema
Expanded Cinema marked the beginning of the end of medium specificity that would happen decades later in the great digital convergence. [...] The currently embryonic AR Cloud is a three-dimensional, 1:1 mapping of the physical world. In that sense, the real world itself is the operating system. Everything will run off it. Future World Games will be played not on Dymaxion maps but on virtual real-world locations.

L’umanità controversa. Riflessioni tra speranza e futuro a partire da Greta Thunberg
[ITA] Si è detto e scritto molto sul conto di Greta Thunberg, quello che ha fatto è stato esaltato, analizzato, criticato, fino a diventare oggetto di insulti e minacce.

[ENG] It has been said and written a lot about Greta Thunberg, what she did was exalted, analyz...

A tribute to Noema 20th Anniversary
In 2002 I worked on a collaborative project 34 North 118 West that was one of the first GPS locative narratives. After that there was a new terrifying feeling in my life of what to do next, where to go on an invisible, uncertain path. I felt lost for a year then collaborated on a project that ran text/image/sound works with hacked data from earthquake sensors. We worked on it for months and it was in a gallery back when digital exhibition was strange and odd. We buried a computer in a wall...
Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Generative Models in the Arts and Design
As artists and designers create never-before-heard sounds and images of never-before-seen faces, explore new processes for human-machine co-creation and infinitely parameterize the design of objects, are we at the dawn of a new paradigm in creative practice?
Expanded Cinema, Fiftieth Anniversary Edition
First published in 1970, Gene Youngblood’s influential Expanded Cinema was the first serious treatment of video, computers, and holography as cinematic technologies. Long considered the Bible for media artists, Youngblood’s insider account of 1960s counterculture and the birth of cybernetics remains a mainstay reference in today’s hypermediated digital world.
