Abstract

This second Art in the Age of Artificial Intelligence (3AI) observes that an increasing number of artworks are now inspired by or produced with advanced technologies mainly influenced by generative AI, deeply infused at the very heart of the artworks. Such development interrogates the notion of Art, including the artist and the definition of artistic approach. It also questions how artworks are discovered, exchanged, collected, and preserved. The advent of increasingly advanced digital technologies provokes profound philosophical and ethical inquiries. These ongoing transformations across artistic, cultural, economic, political, and professional realms seem to be long-lasting, with implications that have started to resonate within society.

Presentation

The 1st "3AI" was held in La Louvière in Belgium on 27-28 April 2023 and was organised by Transculutures (Centre of Digital and Sound Arts, Belgium) and CiTU-Paragraphe (University Paris 8, France). 

This second Art in the Age of Artificial Intelligence (3AI) follows the same line as the 1st symposium. It observes that an increasing number of artworks are now inspired by or produced with advanced technologies mainly influenced by generative AI, deeply infused at the very heart of the artworks. Such development interrogates the notion of Art, including the artist and the definition of artistic approach. It also questions how artworks are discovered, exchanged, collected, and preserved. The advent of increasingly advanced digital technologies provokes profound philosophical and ethical inquiries. These ongoing transformations across artistic, cultural, economic, political, and professional realms seem to be long-lasting, with implications that have started to resonate within society.

Similar to human curiosity, the evolution of emergent technologies never stops, making us to rethink new forms of Art based on:

  • bio art: this field involves using biotechnology and living organisms, such as cells, bacteria, or plants, in artistic practice. Often exploring the ethical, social, and aesthetic implications of biotechnology.
  • Data visualisation
  • ecological concerns: in which art forms often use sustainable materials and technology to raise awareness about environmental issues.
  • generative art
  • generative writing:  methods and protocols in collaboration with artificial intelligence to develop collective intelligence by stimulating common writing.
  • quantum arts
  • robotics art, either in the creation process (robots creating art) or as a substantial part of the artwork (interactive robotic installations).
  • ...

The goal of the second 3AI Symposium is twofold. First, to contribute to the discussion of various interrogations about "What makes Art today?" Second, to reflect on the new context and environment of artistic production.

Artists, artistic instruments (intelligent, extended, mixed, augmented & virtual ones), designers, producers, critics, collectors, spectators, researchers, and policymakers are all invited to be part of the presentations (conference, exhibition, podcasts, video, installation, ...) and discussions (round tables, social networks).

3AI.2 will to explore the following topics (and not limited to)

    • Aesthetics and philosophy of Art
    • Art beyond AI
    • Art critic in the age of AI
    • Art Curation in the age of AI 
    • Art Mediums
    • Art & Metaverse
    • Art society
    • Bio Art
    • BlockChain (NFT) Arts
    • Crypto-Art
    • Data-Driven Art

Submission guidelines

All contributions are to be submitted on the conference platform: click here

There are three main categories for participating in the second 3AI symposium: long presentation, short presentation, artwork

Long presentation 

A long paper (up to 7,000 words) or, preferably, a long video (18 minutes maximum) that will serve as primary material for general discussion during the symposium sessions. These contributions are expected to bring new perspectives to the field, to propose new practical approaches, and to provide the participants with new tools, methodologies, strategies, or models.

Short presentation 

Short papers (up to 3,500 words) or short videos (up to 9 minutes) are meant to bring additional material for general discussion to the audience. These contributions offer alternative views and present completed or in-progress projects or experiences.

Artworks

In partnership with Transcultures and Pépinières européennes de Création, artworks will be exhibited on site. Artworks should reflect or address one of the topics of 3AI. Artists (already linked to the organisers) are responsible for providing the equipment necessary to install the work. They should be autonomous for the technical installation of the work and its removal. Technical preparation should be quick and light. A grant of 300 euros per selected project (4 maximum) is offered by Pépinières européennes de Création. Various formats are accepted, including installations, video projections, mobile applications, and performances.
