Beyond Digital: Or, Why There Won’t Be a 3rd Digital Turn Driven by AI
The talk will discuss some aspects of the current use of machine learning technologies in the visual arts, and suggest that GAN generated images, or images generated by generative AI, are inducing a surreptitious revival of some ancestral (and long disparaged) categories of western art, such as imitation, and style.
