This is how SciArt ideas are born

Last year, while going through the SciArt Center residency program, I wrote a blog post about how I start planning out new projects and how my “blueprints” turn into 3-dimensional artwork. In contrast to (likely) most artists, my sketchbook contains more writing than drawing. This is how I capture ideas about different options that I need to think about before proceeding to starting the project. And this is all despite the fact that consider myself a very visual person, who perceives ideas much better in picture vs. written form.

In this case, a couple weeks ago I spoke with a lady who is planning to organize an exhibition titled “Steal This Face”, which can show different interpretations of how humans recognize faces and how that may be addressed/outcompeted by AI. I showed her a few or my works related to the visual system, such as “Tortured”, “Hope” and “Finding Your Self” and she seemed to be very intrigued. The exhibition dates have not been determined yet, and she challenged me to come up with maybe one more work related to eyes and to further explore the relationship between vision and AI. So this is what I’ve come up with so far. 😅😎 Do you have any idea where this may be going? 🤣

And as a side note, “Finding Your Self” has been selected for a gallery exhibition at Viridian Artists that will begin in November. I will post more information closer to the opening date. Please stop by if you are in the NYC area!
