I’m a Visual Artist exploring the field of Generative AI 
based on curiosity, serendipity and playfulness.

The dialog between human and machine not only produces new botanical forms, but also creates a new aesthetic narrative that unites technology and nature. _Free Work






Haus zum Falken
“Perspektiven”
_2023_Synthetic Media Media_At the beginning of December 2023, the foundation stone was laid for the new “Haus zum Falken” in Zurich, designed by architect Santiago Calatrava. 

I was invited to contribute a series of 60 synthetic media artworks to the time capsule. These combine the essential characteristics of Santiago Calatrava’s design with the diverse perspectives of the city and its inhabitants. 

The generative process of creation results in ever-changing patterns that combine complexity and fluidity. Each image is more than a snapshot; it is a window to countless possible future realities of the “Haus zum Falken” and thus to the entire development of the city of Zurich.

Synthetic Tenderness
(Axelsson, C. HG. (i.E.) Tender Digitality. Karlsruhe: Slanted)
_2023_Design Research & Writing_The book “Tender Digitality” offers a collection of texts and other artefacts which articulate an aesthetically oriented concept that both intricately interweaves binary systems and sets them into motion. 

In 2023 I explored various playforms of “Tender Digitality” with the help of Generative AI. The results of the visual design research and my reflection on this newly emerged “Synthetic Tenderness” can be found in this publication by the amazing Charlotte Axelsson and slanted.

“The tenderness of digitality often doesn’t manifest in the end result, at least not primarily. Instead, it is the collaborative process of creation with algorithmic systems, the dialogue with machines, that offers the real space for emotional resonance.”

In Flux
_2023_Synthetic Mixed Media _Based on the observation of the latent space this series presents a unique perspective on the impermanence of our existance. This initial state of blur, which lasts only a few seconds during the image generation process, serves as a powerful visual representation of the transience of living. However, the blurred images that result from this process also possess a certain timelessness and universality. 

It also reflects a deeper philosophical concept: the idea that nothing in this world is truly concrete or fixed. Everything is subject to change and transformation. In this sense, this work is a reflection on the impermanence and fluidity of life itself.

Birth
_2022/23_Synthetic Mixed Media _ The imagemaking process of generative AI starts with diffusion models which slowly build up and define the artworks based on the input parameters. I interrupted this diffusion process right in the beginning, and discovered the beauty of newborn AI imagery.Is it already a plagiat, copy or images theft? And who exactly was robbed? Could this be a proof that algorithm-based image generation is even more than clumsy imitation?

Two images of the series were choses by the Alumni Organisation of the Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK), Netzhdk, for their yearly graduation card and art poster design.

New Words
_2022/23_Synthetic Mixed Media _ New words for seriously ill people in fragile phases of life. As part of the exhibition "Sterben gestalten" (Shaping Dying) I had the privilege of designing a series of greeting cards for seriously ill people to help them respond to speechlessness or the wrong words. The exhibition at the Generationenhaus in Bern ran from 30.3. to 29.4.2023. My intention was the visualisation of the moment between this world and the next.

Post-Post-Painterly Color Field_2022_Synthetic Mixed Media_This series explores the possibilities of using artificial intelligence as a tool to challenge conventional art forms and create unique, abstract compositions. The use of AI algorithms results in a series of pieces that are both unpredictable and spontaneous, yet maintain a harmonious balance of color and form._Free Work





Ocean_2021_Synthetic Mixed Media"Ocean 10/09/21" is a bold and minimalistic artwork created in September 2021 as part of the Art & AI module at the Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK). 

This piece marks the beginning of my AI journey and the start of my personal AI minimalisms, which explores the abstract art movement in the age of AI.
