The Hypnotic Allure of the AI Art Generator

Artist Mario Klingemann’s groundbreaking piece of Artificial Intelligence (AI) generates a never-ending real-time stream of original art. The recent winner of The Lumen Prize for Art and Technology, Klingemann’s pioneering work features an AI ‘brain’ that creates new images based on photographs of portraits from the 17th to 19th centuries. ‘Memories of Passersby I’ is a highlight of Sotheby's upcoming Contemporary Art Day Auction (6 March | London) and will be the first self-contained, generative work of AI ever to appear on the market.
