Artist Emi Kusano participated in the exhibition "DXP (Digital Transformation Planet) - Towards the Next Interface" at the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art in Kanazawa, starting October 7. Alongside her AI photo series "Pixelated Perception," recently showcased at ArtBlocks Marfa, a generative art festival held in Texas, she debuted her new installation titled "Morphing Memory of Neural Fad." This installation is a video version of her renowned work "Neural Fad" and will be exhibited for the first time.



Morphing Memory of Neural Fad (2023)

This work features numerous photographs of somewhat familiar yet strange sceneries. Displayed are fictional street snapshots made by generative AI. The series of images reexamines the relationship between AI and human memory by evoking our feeling of nostalgia through AI creations.

Video director/technical assistance: Kanji Kyoda 

Pixelated Perception (2023)

How have representations of pixels/mosaics influenced visual culture? Pixelized portraits of fictional individuals made by generative AI raise questions about the interaction between the virtual and the real, as well as gender roles associated with pixels and mosaics.
