‘Memories of Passerby 1’, a self-generative artificial intelligence artwork at London’s Sotheby’s, will certainly leave art lovers spellbound. This artwork is incorporated with two screens attached to a wooden sideboard that is built using artificial intelligence. The artwork is programmed to use its processing power and the neural network to, then, create endless and unique male and female portraits that fade out and are never seen again.
The auction for this unique self-generative art at Sotheby’s is slated to be held on March 6 with an estimated value between £30,0000-£40,000. This artwork will be the second AI work of art to be auctioned.
This revolutionary creation is created by Mario Klingemann, a German artist. Klingemann claims that thousands of images of Western European art were used to establish the AI and the data-set.
The entire machinery runs on electricity and the neural networks learn and develop things in the same way as the human mind.
Magical, isn’t it?
