Welcome to the East Gallery. It features more experimental collections that explore the combination of AI with alternative formats and mediums.

Selected videos of clumsy.giba
Clumsy.giba’s videos are reminiscent of zooming into the depths of the Mandelbrot set and they help expose, in real time, the endless root network of possibilities that every artwork contains hidden inside it. Clumsy.giba describes their work as “between the genius and the madness of an artificial intelligence artist,” and describes their approach as “the combination of multiple techniques, most of which are powered by machine learning, to create short and compelling artistic videos.” You can learn more by visiting their YouTube page here: https://www.youtube.com/@clumsy_giba/about and their Instagram page here: https://www.instagram.com/clumsy.giba/.

Text character art collection
ASCII codes and Unicodes are used to represent text in computers, and text-based ASCII art was one of the earliest forms of computer art. In this collection, we portray what a hypothetical programmer at the dawn of the age of computing might imagine the first AI art to look like. A custom Python program was created to convert images that used AI as part of their process into text character art. It does this by analyzing light and dark values of each part of the image and assigns that part a specific Unicode character chosen by the artist. The resulting text files were imported into vector graphics programs for further editing. Custom fonts were also created to expand the possible characters beyond the limits of Unicode.
Work in progress. More images coming soon.
