AI art project by Jochen Hirschfeld.
"Latent Space" is an innovative art series by Jochen Hirschfeld that blends artificial intelligence and artistic expression.
Drawing from the concept of latent space in machine learning, the series features AI-generated images that challenge our perceptions of technology and creativity. Hirschfeld employs a nostalgic dot matrix printer, adding a unique dimension to his work while highlighting the rapid pace of technological progress.
The series is composed of three main pieces: "Love," "Home," and a South Sea island scene named “Paradise”. Each image reveals intricate compositions of ASCII characters and hidden text messages generated by ChatGPT, inviting the viewer to explore deeper layers of meaning. The artworks address themes such as the Uncanny Valley, the evolving relationship between humans and artificial beings, and the implications of AI on our notions of safety and authority.
"Latent Space" is a visually stunning and thought-provoking art series that invites reflection on the role of AI in our lives and the future that lies ahead. A must-see for art enthusiasts and technology aficionados alike, the series captures the complexities of our rapidly evolving world. The Mono-Matrix print, developed by Jochen Hirschfeld, is a hand-layered computer print created using a dot-matrix or pin printer, which was common in the 1980s.
The manual production process generates a unique image, so that each finished layered print slightly varies from the others within the same series, similar to a 'variable edition'. The edition is limited to ten standalone prints per motif and is marked with "x/10 E.V." All prints are individually produced by the artist in his Munich studio.
