Whether you’re an integrator, a designer or simply a label-defying creative, the experience is everything. Host Bryan Meszaros explores the story behind the exhibit to understand how a carefully crafted experience traps into the human experience to connect people to place.

 

Life offers up a lot of experience. As technology advances, a lot of our unique experiences come in the digital space. This is no different for Dutch artist Jeroen Van Der Most, whose work incorporates data, algorithms, and artificial intelligence.

On this episode of Experience By Design, Host Bryan Meszaros talks with Van Der Most about his art and how it crosses the divide between the digital world and the illusory boundary of our own. While a significant amount of his work is autonomous, he does commission work for organizations such as Amnesty International.

Meszaros and Van Der Most talked about the use of AI in Van Der Most’s work. He still explores textbooks and digs into what is out there in the digital world. He worked in data science, so being in the world of algorithms came naturally.

“I studied how people were having conversations online,” Van Der Most said. He would study the conversations online for brands. This work proved monotonous, so he started digging into creative outlets. He created basic Twitter images from the Tweets he used in his research. Doing this, he made portraits from the messages.

cAround 2013-14, new AI systems and learning appeared and took things to a new level. This allowed artists to engage on a deeper basis with new sounds and imagery. It also started raising some questions for Van Der Most.

“Along the way, I got more interested in the philosophical underlying of what AI is,” Van Der said. “It raises all sorts of philosophical questions.”

An example would be Van Gogh or Rembrandt. AI was used to study all of their work, and then it created new paintings. This raises all sorts of questions about what is creative, what does that mean for artists and humans.

Meszaros explores these subjects and more with Van Der Most.
