Form is pleased to announce ‘Digital Anomalies’, our first project entirely produced with artificial intelligence,whichincludes works and documentation in a unified form.
Through the use of AI, Nicolás Lamas creates intersections of previously produced works presented in past exhibitions, reconfigu-ring and crossing old works to obtain new versions. By manipulating and reconfiguring past works, Lamas opens up new perspectives and possibilities, demonstrating the power of technology in shaping our perceptual and visual universe.
The software used re-elaborations and repositions of organic and inorganic elements present on the surface of these artworks, creating hybrid works that mix the digital and physical world, the past and present, the virtual and tangible. This project exclusively uses photographic narration to highlight the potential of artificial images in replacing traditional documentation. Instead of a linear and reliable sequence, something more akin to an overlapping and multidimensional sequence is presented, inviting us to explore and rethink the concept of “exhibition” in the era of narratives and synthetic images.
Through the documentation of the works themselves, the artist and the interconnected and complicit AI tool compose a new grammar, revealing a difficult-to-define visual “metamorphosis” that is constantly changing and transforming. We will be surprised to find out that there is not much difference between the work of art, its representation, and its two-dimensional reproduction. Everything is part of a continuous flux that sculpts, directs and modulates our perception.
