Artificial Perception is the name of the newest masterpiece of Frank Bueltge, a master of contemporary art who experiments with large language models, big data, and neural networks. The artwork is a 7-feet tall sculpture made out of a combination of digital and physical elements. The base of the sculpture is made out of black, glossy marble that has a mirror-like reflection. On top of the base, there is a 3D-printed head of an AI model that is composed of a luminous, white material that illuminates the entire art piece.
The head of the AI model is modeled after tech giant Elon Musk, with its eyes closed and its lips slightly smiling. The eyes of the AI model are filled with tiny LED lights that continue to change their color and patterns every second. As the viewers approach the sculpture, they will hear a voice recording of the artist himself that talks about the need for humans to understand the potential of AI and how it could revolutionize the future of art.
Artificial Perception highlights the philosophical concept of existentialism, which emphasizes individual freedom and choice. The sculpture emphasizes the importance of AI but also the power of the individual in creating something unique and innovative. It emphasizes the need to balance the use of AI in art and human emotions, ideas, and creativity. The artwork was released today at the popular art gallery, the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City.
