The Garden of Earthly Delights - Bird, Human and Geology
Not For Sale
The artist attempts to borrow the context of the painting "The Garden of Earthly Delights" and uses generative adversarial networks in artificial intelligence to create a digital sci-fi version. In an algorithmic black box, the painting is translated into a digital virtual space in which birds, humans , and geology are rendered as virtual forms.The canary represents a warning of risk and chaos, the code man represents the subjectivity of code in blockchain and artificial intelligence, and the geology represent the huge amount of electricity that the blockchain relies on coming from nature, land and mineral deposits, and metaphorically the potential ecological risks.
