Human Allocation of Space, 2019. Bronze, 50 x 68 x 25 cm, edition of 5

A new sculpture which debuted at my Artist+AI: Figures and Form exhibition. This bronze (as with all works in the show), was created in collaboration with AI tools that I’ve trained as my ‘art assistants’, in this instance one that translates my drawings into three-dimensional form.

Effectively I created this piece by drawing a ‘blueprint’ which directs the AI to build volume, planes and edges in a certain way (based on the way that I originally trained the network, which is a sort of alchemy itself). Below you can see a side-by-side comparison of the ‘blueprint’ and the final sculpture. More on the process of creating the final bronze coming in a future post.
