Yuma Kishi is an acclaimed Japanese contemporary artist using Artificial Intelligence (AI) to create data-driven digital works and sculptures. Exhibited widely in Japan, his works have been featured by major brands such as Nike and publications such as Vogue. Borrowing motifs and symbols from the canons of both Western and Asian art history, his paintings distort our perceptions of the history of aesthetics. Using AI technology, his works evoke a sense of momentary dislocation in the viewer’s awareness of the self, creating a liminal space in between the here and now.
The work of Yuma Kishi, who engages with artificial intelligence (AI), is based on the suspicion or denial of a single solution or expression. In addition, the world after singularity (“technical singularity”, where computers surpass humans) is a sign of the arrival of a peaceful coexistence and co-prosperity between human beings and machines. With the help of AI, familiar scenes and icons reveal a completely different essence. What can you see in a world that seems to be an ocean paradise?
