Exhibition: The Age of AI Artisans
AICAN Algorithm, 'Unhuman: Art in the Age of AI' (2017)
Mycroft, 'Free Association' (2017)
Rainer Kohlberger, 'Keep that dream burning' (2017)

The exhibition features the premiere of the materializations of the AICAN algorithm, a computational creative system for art generation, developed by computer scientist Prof. Ahmed Elgammal at Rutgers University, and its first curated selection by Princeton art historian Emily L. Spratt. In addition, The Age of the AI Artisans presents the inaugural showing of Free Association by Mycroft, an AI installation for spontaneous interaction to visually reflect thoughts and feelings and leave the visitor with something to contemplate. Also part of the exhibition is Keep that Dream Burning, a video installation and experimental short film based on algorithmic compositions by Berlin­-based visual artist Rainer Kohlberger that invite its viewer on a journey through dramatic scenery consisting of flickering lights and floating electronic sounds.
