About

The NFT is live for auction on OpenSea until midnight on 17 DECEMBER 2021.

The exhibition’s eponymous, sublime AI Data Painting, Nature Dreams utilizes over 300 million publicly available photographs of nature collected between 2018- 2021 at Refik Anadol Studio. Combined, this represents the largest raw dataset of nature ever gathered for an artwork, which was then used to train a GAN AI algorithm. The resulting AI Data Painting incorporates pigments, shapes, and patterns that we associate with nature, but only exist in the mind of a machine as dreams. Each variation features a stunning visual interpretation, together forming a multi- faceted reflection of the nuanced relationship between technology, humanity, and culture. With the assistance of the Google AI Quantum team, Anadol was granted access to one of the world’s foremost quantum computing research projects all- owing him to merge AI-induced latent space with a quantum hyperspace, and thus speculate an alternative reality through the lens of nature aesthetics.

This artwork comes with an artist-signed 3D physical certificate with backup source ins- tallation files, a custom computer with software, to be shipped by the artist to the future buyer. Refik Anadol‘s studio will assist the future buyer with installation instructions and oversight. The LED screen is not included.
