BRUTALISM MORPHISM

In my research experiments with AI generated art on the Midjourney platform - where images are generated from the input of keywords by artificial intelligence algorithms - I came up with the topic of reusing the results.

 

In this series, brutalism and parametric design meet the expansion of own graphic elements that come from the Multimorphism series and are mixed with the artificial images.

"Brutalism Morphism" shows fictional architecture scenarios, based on Bauhaus, utopia and dystopian urbanity - paired with linear repetitive vector graphics, which enter into a symbiosis with the architecture through post-processing and thus turn previously artificially generated images into real offline one-offs.

The series is based on a special digital-analogue technique in which the illustrations are transferred to Polaroid photos. These, in turn, are literally broken down into their individual components by hand and separate the photo film from its front and back coating. The exposed film can be transferred to watercolor paper through a heat and cold basin and rearranged with a brush and blower.

The result is an image of the digital variant with its own unique charm and spatial depth. Wrinkles and tears in the film can be specifically arranged and make the Polaroid transfers look really old.

The transfer of the gel film to paper under the influence of the heat-cold basin makes the Polaroid on paper up to two centimeters larger than its digital counterpart. This creates a unique series that, with the help of artificial intelligence, creates something new that has existed for a long time outside of the digital computer world.
