PFPx30 contains elements and memories of previous artworks in CRASHBLOSSOM's PFP series, which explore the splintering of identity in digital environments. Here the degraded digital identity is propelled into a state of continuous change over time.
A dynamic AI edition of 30 pieces, where all the editions are the same, but each one different at any time. The continual dynamic changes of the neural net-generated artwork are hardly perceptible, calling into question the reliability of memory and perception.
ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
PFPx30 by Crashblossom is part of the exhibition RECOLLECTION. AI AND MEMORY presented by EXPANDED.ART in collaboration with The NFT Gallery at their galleries in New York and London, 11 April – 13 May 2023.
19 artists explore the idea of further challenging the concreteness of human memory—personal or collective—through creative collaboration with AI.
Memories are nebulous. Scientific studies and phenomena such as "The Mandela Effect" have shown that humans rarely recall things in their unbiased exactitude. Artificial Intelligence already assists human memory in the form of predictive text and GPS navigation. One would surmise that there exists a role for AI when it comes to supplementing even more complex memory.
