10,000 other artists have already done this better; I hope the suckers and rubes at and start trying to fob-off this crapola on other idiot collectors & speculators like them. It's a wonder they can even breathe.
Preparing to test the art market — and young buyers — with “Edmond de Belamy, from La Famille de Belamy.”

I couldn't even begin to explain how dumb AI art is. You could never produce a true piece of art in that manner.

Some years ago, the winner of the world chili cook off in Terlingua submitted a pot of chili comprised of samples from all the other entries. The champion was literally average.

I don’t know if there were 10,000 artists who did this and better, but I did : )

I don't know what you think of Vik Muniz's work but the AI piece reminded me of the process that produced his Pictures of Garbage. Algorithmic. But human. And Muniz and Walker seemed to be concerned about some of the same things you're getting at.

As an artist in NYC I've certainly been disheartened by the serious lack of curatorial understanding of what art is.

todays contemporary art find... 2 cardboard boxes from sothebys at £8000. (head explodes). … starting to understand what Cezanne said now. 'The day is coming when a single carrot, freshly observed, will set off a revolution'

I disagree, and who gets to decide what is true art. Certainly not you, and certainly not but yeah this auction is a fraud. Everyone who uses ai as a tool or as a stand alone artist knows this

You don't like the Nauman, Hilma af Klint, or Sarah Lucas shows at three major NYC museums!?!? Delacroix at the Met??

There's no way AI can put the raw HUMAN emotion of an artist into a piece. True art goes beyond what is aesthetically pleasing sometimes and invokes reactions because of the humanity behind it's creation.

Your totally missing the point and don't understand the tool. Humans make the AI, it's just another tool humans use for Mark making, like a brush. For example I am training GANs on my own highly emotional figurative line drawings and the results are very emotional, yet novel.

no way until someone does it. the best artists will be using AI. Normal humans will not be able to keep up and will become obsolete. Ok, oil paint for oil paintings sake, but this is irrelevant for the Post internet age. I predict AI botnets will be next evolution of street art

Sure AI can be great! It already has been. You've seen scores of "AI" works that you thought was "made by a person." Because really, it WAS ultimately "made by a person."

Using something as a tool and trying to make something think and feel emotion are two very different things. For example, a completely non-objective piece loses it's entire purpose for existing without the thoughts and emotion that go behind it's creation.

No artist no art that simply. Algorithms don’t inherently burp out art

The museums Gug Met and Moma always have good stuff. I’m talking about other smaller galleries. I’m not a big “corporate lobby art” fan.
