Discomfort Exhibition - Korsi Society - Vienna, Oct/2021

Synesthesia and qualia: can one really describe how pain feels? My friend Bárbara Paes and I investigated that question. She made a synesthetic dictionary for her fibromyalgia. I prompt-engineered and fed to the AI (CLIP Guided Diffusion). We exhibited the results in a gallery in Vienna in October/2021. You can check out how it was here.

Unusual mashups @ datadays - ETH Zurich, May/2022

The set titled "Unusual Mashups" showcases how AI art can both compose novel pieces and be a direct bridge between imagination and canvas. I was invited to be featured in the "Data Days" event, an event about machine learning + art at ETH Zurich. I also gave a talk there, "Multimodal AI art and the future of creativity".

To celebrate the 100 years of the "Week of Modern Art" in Brazil I've done some reinterpretations of the piece "Abapuru" by Tarsila do Amaral
