Artificial Surrealism is a series that began in 2023, exploring the advancements of AI, blending technology with a surrealist and brutalist thematic aesthetic. The images result from various digital commands that, accumulatively, generate invented structures. In many works comprising the series, machine-produced glitches can be observed, revealing that what we see is not a “real” image. What constitutes a real image?
However, there are alterations to perception that feel familiar and give rise to what I call the “vanguard of the infinite.” AI can create infinite altered realities that remain strangely recognizable to us. The reproducible and the irreproducible merge within a single attempt, presenting an intriguing duality for the future of art and its production.
