Using faces generated by a neural network as objects of meditation, AI Portraits explores the ever-dissolving space between virtual and physical worlds. These distorted, psychedelic renderings highlight the artificiality of these faces while situating them within a posthuman landscape. They are humanity mediated by technology to the extent that they are indistinguishable from each other.
Ghost Princess Series NFTs
I developed, designed, and minted a series of PFP NFTs based on my original character Ghost Princess. The series uses pixel art to depict Ghost Princess in a variety of hats. Each image was minted to the Polygon blockchain and is available on OpenSea.
Meditations on the Circle
The circle is an intriguing subject. It can never be fully captured; perfect circles are impossible to create. It exists in the mind alone, the subconscious placing a circle where in reality there is an aliased approximation. Yet circles are often considered simple objects one might paint for practice or warmup. In these images, I elevate the circle to the status of full subject, rendering them in vibrant color and detail despite none of them being perfectly round. This is a celebration of approximation, imitation, and simulation.
Art that incorporates elements from pop culture and other ”low” forms of art. I mostly work with cartoon characters and faces, rendering them with careful detail and placing them in new contexts to create tension.
Various pieces of art I’ve made.
