A story is born out of artificial shapes predicted by fire or by computer. We are smoke and form, yes evolving in a process in which the technology (like fire) we harness brings about changes the human mind. And the evolved mind creates revolutionary tools but we have a failure to communicate.
Inspired by Bård’s first mint of art called Alien Intelligence. A foreign intelligence is attempting to communicate with any intelligent life on earth. They have chosen to use technology to communicate and travel. The first understood contact at the SAGE computer give rise to the SAGE Anomaly and an ongoing mystery. https://sageAnomaly.com
Art created using drawings made using oscilloscope software OsciStudio and then used to train multiple Ai models using StyleGAN3. Oscilloscope drawings were made by the artist between 2016 – 2023
For this project Bård collected the oscilliscope drawings he had made, art pieces he had creted before.
The use of a Generative Adversarial Network (GAN) to create images of fire infuses the work with a contemporary relevance, as it represents a frontier where technology meets creativity. GANs, by their nature, involve a dialogical process where two neural networks challenge and refine each other’s outputs, which is metaphorically mirrored in the alien intelligence that is trying to communicate within each square. This speaks to the historical rebellion against traditional art techniques and the embrace of emergent systems to create art.
Bård’s First GAN Art from 2018
This selection used Art-DCGAN based on DCGAN trained on oscilloscope art. Bård’s first model and first NFT mints
