Art-A-Hack 2023 AI Art In a Time of War at the Faculty of Mathematics, Informatics and Mechanics at the University of Warsaw Poland consisted of 18 participants from Poland, Ukraine and the United States examining issues of AI, memory and trauma in a time of war.
Using AI Art for 3D Robotic rendering in Unity, AI cinema, and Voice ML (Machine Learning) with a customized style GAN image bank three teams put together rapid prototyping projects exploring war, trauma and loss.
With the support of the University of Warsaw, Faculty of Mathematics, Informatics and Mechanics and Fulbright Poland Art-A-Hack 2023 Special Edition brought together creative technologists, both students and professionals to create three different projects that worked with responses to memory and trauma in a time of war.
From March to June participants learned about AI, art, and strategies of collaboration to produce 3D animation as part of an installation, new modes of AI cinema and biometrics, and voice ML with projected GANS harnessing the skill sets and expertise of both students and professionals in computer science, physics, software development, 3D design, theater, visual art, cinematography and sound design. With the support of Art-A-Hack founder and Fulbright Scholar Ellen Pearlman participants were exposed to a broad range of current topics in AI to support their vision in presenting works dealing with the current crisis of the ongoing conflict with Russia.
