— AN ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE ON THE FUTURE OF FASHION
A machine capable of learning and associative reasoning. Silently it’s observing its surroundings, avariciously recording any light and pattern it can lay its artificial eye on.
During the show in London it’s collecting the visual data necessary to further evolve in Warsaw where it’s then able to generate first sketches of a new type of fashion completely generated by a neural network until being fully developed at its final destination in Vienna. NOUS001 is an artistic experiment not even the creators of the machine have full control over.
Question is what kind of patterns or even fully developed pieces of fashion are possibly being created by a non-human, slowly progressing into the realm of artificial creativity.
— Bernhard Eiling is a Berlin-based information artist and software engineer who has already realized several works of digital art presented at Künstlerhaus, Vienna and GPLcontemporary.
— Maximilian Mauracher is a Vienna-based art director who is „part of a wave of remarkable European designers of late“ (It’s Nice That), but his creative range also spans to collaborative projects which involve art and fashion.
Now the duo is investigating the role of artificial intelligence on the future of fashion for almost a full year.
