DEEP DREAMED TALES

This project continues my experiments with AI. I wondered, what if artificial intelligence and an artist created an illustrated book of poems? And what would be the result of this partnership? I started it in 2021, and it seems to have finished in 2022. This time, the algorithm was the author of the poems, and I was a kind of illustrator of these stories. These poems are placed next to the images and sometimes on the picture itself. The aim was to capture the state of the development of language algorithms at the time of creating these works. And also, I hoped to understand whether artificial intelligence is really just a tool or maybe somewhere in the depths, there is a creative spark attributed only to humans.

THE GAME

 

In this project, I explored an idea of co-creation by an Artist (me) and an Artificial Intelligence (AI) algorithm. I wanted to reduce the artist’s hand mark in the final artwork to see if the AI has its own creativity or if it’s just a tool in the artist’s hands..

We made our moves turn by turn. I used a photo I took and fed it to AI. The result was not very different from the original at first. The algorithm saw the landscape and reproduced the landscape accordingly. Then I tried to add to the image something not clear to the algorithm. I drew some new objects in the photo and gave it back to the algorithm. Back I got a photo similar to what I gave the algorithm from the beginning. It seemed that the AI ​​simply removed everything he did not understand and brought the image to the standard. But I kept adding more and more elements to the photo.

Eventually, the algorithm began to generate more unusual images. These images turned on my imagination. In obscure patterns, I saw objects that my brain recognized. I repeated this action in 10-15 steps and now I publish the images we got with the algorithm during the game.

In the process of creating this project, I often realized how similarly the algorithm and the person recognize the image. Each of us subconsciously recognized the objects he understood in a set of abstract spots. The only difference was in experience. The algorithm was trained on thousands of images, and my brain was trained on an incredible number of objects seen in 30+ years of my life.

LOST IN TIME

 

The “Lost in Time” project is my attempt to capture the vague state of the world and uncertainty about the future with a visual medium. We live in a time of constant accelerated changes, that make the future more undetermined.

It is at the fingertips when you are in the epicenter of something unstable. When you live in a country, where the next election will dramatically change the course of the country for the next 4 years.

I born in the USSR – the country that is no longer exists. At the moment of the disintegration of the USSR, I was 7. For the boy of my age, it was unnoticed that one country has gone forever and something changed. Completely different it was for my parents, who felt all out this impact of a new reality.

In Ukraine, a lot of things around reminds of a past that has gone. Abandoned buildings that have lost their purpose – symbols of a bygone era. Confused people that lost their faith. Lost in time. There is no clear vision of what comes next.

SLOWED BY THE SUN

 

One day I went to an abandoned farm in the village. There was dark inside and smelled like hay. Through some holes in the roof, the light came inside. I was hidden from the rest of the world in this building. Time became slow and dense. I was feeling the time at the fingertips. In my mind surfaced memories from my childhood where I climbed a shed in the summer. The air was so dense, that it could be taken in a handful. At the end of the long roof was a small window, which opened a view on the garden. Everything seemed so bright through that window. It was like another world. Empty world, that waiting on you. And you, sitting quietly in the dark and just watching.

INTERCONNECTED

 

We all are living in a society, so we are interconnected. Through the series “Interconnected” I investigate the relationship between individuals in a society and the relationship of a person with itself under the influence of society. Even if, we count ourselves independent persons, it just means, we don’t notice the influence on us. The one-line continuous drawing of people’s faces and objects is a cornerstone element of this series. I use different symbols besides faces, to tell a full story.

EXPERTS

 

In this series I work with the topic of expertise in the modern environment. The network has created millions of online experts on any issues. Everyone who has a desire and confidence can out-speak his instant opinion. This process shifted the weight of expertise from large institutions and dozens of persons to millions of individual leaders of opinion. Each event usually has two sides of one coin. We received more independent opinions and reduced the influence of dictatorship. But such a large number of independent thoughts makes it rather difficult to choose one thought that can be trusted. There is a high risk of becoming numb in the inability to choose the one truth.
