Sofia Crespo is an artist with a focus on artificial life, her practice is driven by a huge interest in biologically-inspired technologies, such as artificial neural networks. One of her main focuses is the way organic life uses artificial mechanisms to simulate itself and evolve. With an interest in the workings of the human brain, Crespo looks at the similarities between the techniques of AI image formation, and the way that humans express themselves creatively, and cognitively recognize their world. Crespo's work brings into question the potential of AI in artistic practice and its ability to reshape our understandings of creativity. Indeed, AI may influence the things we make as much as we influence it. If an artists’ equipment has always been an extension of the artist, where does machine learning stand in this balance? Her works have been featured at Nvidia's GTC AI Gallery, Ars Electronica Gallery Spaces Garden, Futurium and have been exhibited around the world both physically and digitally.
What can artificial life teach us about nature?
