Artificial Muse - Unplugged

Florian Dohmann is co-founder and chief creative of Birds on Mars, a next-gen consultancy and creative garden where he and his team help organizations to create strategies, spaces, teams and applications, exploring the in-betweens of artificial, organizational & human intelligence.

Florian is an expert for data, artificial intelligence & digital change, technologist & artist from Berlin.

He is a computer scientist, machine learner, IBM disciple, keynote speaker, guest lecturer at various universities and part of the Berlin entrepreneur network katapult:now.

2016 he started and still leads the first „data science for managers“ course for over 100 executives at Deutsche Bahn and co-started the first lecture for artificial and artistic intelligence at Hochschule für Gestaltung Karlsruhe in 2019.

Florian is part of the artist collective YQP NYC/Berlin. In their artistic work, they explore the human value in our digital world and merge technology with interactive storytelling. Together with the painter Roman Lipski they started an "unfinished" project three years ago where they invented the first and never ending artificial muse in the world of art.



Artificial Muse - Unplugged

The painter Roman Lipski, the artist collective YQP and the company Birds on Mars present the birth of an artificial muse: An AI system that inspires, provokes, and challenges a painter through the mechanisms of science and technology. It is the first true partnership between a painter and artificial intelligence.

Over the course of two years, machine and painter were in a constant intellectual dialogue. The machine’s impact on the artist is inevitable. Through the course of the project, Roman Lipski’s artistic language has fully transformed and has left him perpetually exploring uncharted ways to express himself. It has become a machine in search of diversity, inspiration, and transformation.

Like the invention of the camera helped artists to explore new perspectives, artificial intelligence can ultimately introduce a new art with endless possibilities. The constant interaction between Lipski and his digital muse not only creates a new creative language, but also a new artist. The "Inspirational AI" - in contrast to „creative AI" - reflects the future cooperation between man and machine.

Roman Lipski and Florian Dohmann (YQP + Birds on Mars) present the idea of an AI-muse, which can not only be used artistically, but also finds its way into other creative business areas. What if we could redefine how we collaborate, communicate and co-create with intelligent services and devices?

An accompanying exhibition of selected paintings resulting from the dialogue between artist and AI visualizes the core of the conceptual art, which is based on infinite inspiration.
