curation mode to enhance the efficiency of exhibition operation and provide a more immersive exhibition experience in May!
Through our platform, we hope all artist and curator users can convey their messages more easily and accurately. In addition to tailored exhibition content, users can also personally set the background music for their exhibition spaces, enabling them to plan more immersive exhibitions.
Moving forward, ARTSCLOUD will continue to strive towards to become a platform that allows artists and curators to share and communicate their perspective with others. We will continuously explore and develop to achieve this goal.
A New Perspective on the "Uncanny Valley Phenomenon" at the Intersection of
AI Technology and Human Art
You may have felt uneasy when looking at an android or avatar that resembles humans but is strangely different in video games, animated movies, or robotics. This is known as the uncanny valley phenomenon. As the accessibility of generative AI increases, interesting directions for research on this phenomenon are being proposed. Until now, most scientists have focused on studying the uncanny valley phenomenon itself that occurs in video games, animated movies, and robotics. However, recently, there has been a focus on this phenomenon at two interesting intersections with generative AI, which can bring about new twists.
Artist Introduction 1 : Youngkak Cho
Youngkak Cho (37) is an artist with a strong tendency towards being an early adopter. He has been enthusiastically engaged in various fields that have recently gained popularity, such as artificial intelligence, coding, and fusion, for over a decade. "Generative art," which became a hot topic earlier this year due to the ChatGPT craze, is also an old repertoire of Cho's. This stems from his artistic perspective.
According to Cho, "It is the artist's mission to express our current stories through art" and "It is most ideal to convey contemporary stories in a contemporary way." During his undergraduate years in the Western painting department, he explored the world of digital and media art, even delving into the sound of "Freak" which is his inspiration.
Artist Introduction 2 : Muriel Sago
Muriel Sago is a versatile artist from Argentina. With nearly 20 years of experience as an actress, she has built a unique portfolio in content production and digital art. Her creativity stems from a strong sense of curiosity and a rich imagination. She recalls, "Through acting, I naturally transitioned to other art activities and met various media." Currently, she is focused on abstract and fantastical audiovisual art, with a desire to express stories that do not rely on her appearance or body in a completely new world.
