Victor Wong x A.I. Gemini: Far Side of the Moon3812 London Gallery
3812 London Gallery hosts new work by innovative artist and inventor Victor Wong, who is leading the collaboration between artificial intelligence and ink art. Wong is the creator of A.I. Gemini, the world’s first robotic ink artist programmed with artificial intelligence to paint unique Chinese landscapes. Gemini is coded to plot 3D virtual terrain. Gemini’s arm dips its brush into ink and water, sweeping across fresh xuan paper with calculated choreography to reproduce this terrain with lines and shading. Each resulting work is unique. Wong’s experimentation with A.I. was driven by his desire to explore the possibilities of combining technology and art. He says that ‘my challenge is to make A.I. more human. My collaboration with Gemini is an extension of my art.’
