explores the artistic potential, as well as the possible risks, of machine learning within contemporary jewellery. By ‘working-with’ self-learning algorithms, new types and acts of adornment emerge within the phygital realm. As such, perspectives on human-centered design, materiality, value and authorship are questioned, challenged, or, as it might turn out, more than ever, need to be perpetuated. Through participatory projects, they experiment with embodiments of transformative technologies such as A.I. in collective creation and presentation processes with the aim of envisioning posthuman craft practices.
functions as an active archive. It develops throughout the research, by collecting and presenting a variety of projects. Conceived as a tool, this website is an experiment in creative and reflective writing. By exploring how to document and show an artistic research process, it offers a meta-perspective on the research.
Hereby we'd like to invite you to grow this research together, and love to discover your perspectives on the topics and questions that are discussed.
Artificial Intelligems connects people, artistic practices and technologies to explore more-than-human co-creation with machine learning. Currently, this fluid collective consists of dr. Anneleen Swillen (expanded jewellery practice involving research in the arts, education, curation and writing, and co-founder of Artificial Intelligems), Greg Scheirlinckx (composer, sound engineer, and data scientist and co-founder of Artificial Intelligems), prof. dr. Ine Vanoeveren (XR performer, contemporary flutist, artistic researcher), Esther Verstreken (graphic designer), Guus Vandeweerd (graphic designer) and Senneke Van de Wygaert ((not) a jewellery artist) collaborating on various projects.
Artificial Intelligems emerged within Anneleen’s current postdoctoral research on 'Jewellery phenomena in the phygital age. (Post-)speculative reflections on co-creating, -presenting and -experiencing jewellery in a digital culture' at Hasselt University and PXL- MAD School of Arts, Hasselt (BE).
