  1. This is very interesting. Personally, I do not have a favorable opinion on AI art, but even just this article about this gallery creates questions and challenges ideas and notions I have, and I’ve absolutely become more interested in this conversation. Good job!

  2. I’m a Brighton resident and was really happy to have caught the exhibit before it closed. I’d been curious about AI generated art and I absolutely loved the experience. I thought the American Gothic interpretation was a powerful statement. I loved the re-creation of Adam. And what added to the enigma, although unintentional, was a wild swish from reflections from the images and viewers. I’d have loved to have a chat with Shiller about his interpretations of an original. So for example, Guernica. It was a stunning image but didn’t have the intensity and writhing of the multiple abstract human figures of the original. Focusing on the single desolate woman facing one direction with the bull in the opposite felt like the aftermath of the bombing. Thank you Shiller and Lin as well as BU for this outstanding and thought-provoking exhibit.
