Algorithm art fetches $432,500 at NY auction: Christie's

Картину созданную искусственным интеллектом продали за 430 тысяч долларов

PORTRAIT of Edmond Belamy, the first ever piece of artificial intelligence-generated art to be auctioned off at Christie's in NY, was sold on Thursday for US$432,500 (RM1.8 million) to an anonymous bidder, the Xinhua news agency reported. The bidder, who remains anonymous, bought the piece from the renowned Christie's Prints and Multiples art auction in NY earlier this week.

According to the Times, other AI artists have called the undistinguished portrait "unoriginal", stating that generative adversarial networks have been used in art since 2015, despite Obvious's recent growing attention.

"The algorithm is composed of two parts", Caselles-Dupré explained in a statement online.

Obvious isn't the only group making AI-controlled art.

Selling an AI-generated work at auction seems like mostly a cheap gimmick to make art sales relevant and interesting to the vast majority who have no need or ability to attend one.

First, a set of 15,0000 portraits painted between the 14th and 20th Centuries was fed into a computer.

In place of a signature, the blurry portrait is signed with the equation used to generate the painting. "I really just wanted to provide the AI + art community with some fun tools - never thought anyone would do this", Barrat wrote on Twitter.

"Left: the "AI generated" portrait Christie's is auctioning off right now".

It's the brainchild of French collective Obvious, whose aim is to use artificial intelligence to democratise art.

"The goal is to force the discriminator to think that the new images are true portraits".

"I think that's what happens when you are doing something and nobody cares, then you're just goofing around and you are really inconsistent.For us it was just a amusing way to talk about it".

The portrait depicts a fictionalized character called Edmond de Belamy.

Christie's described some differences of the AI-created work compared to other art it sells.
