Art has always been a medium for human expression, but with the advent of artificial intelligence, we are witnessing a new era in the creation of digital art. This new form of art, created by algorithms and artificial intelligence, is known as AI art, and it has been gaining popularity and recognition in recent years. However, AI art encompasses a wide range of styles, techniques, and media, and it can be challenging to define what constitutes AI art. That's why it appears that Elke Reinhuber has proposed a new term to describe this type of art: Synthography.
The term Synthography combines the words "synthesis" and "photography." It describes the process of synthesizing images using artificial intelligence algorithms, similar to how photographs are taken using cameras. Synthography refers specifically to AI art that involves the creation of images and animations, rather than music or other forms of art.
The term Synthography is meant to differentiate AI art from traditional forms of art and photography. Unlike traditional art, which is created by human artists using physical tools and materials, Synthography is created by algorithms and artificial intelligence. And unlike photography, which captures real-life scenes, Synthography creates images from scratch, often drawing on data sets, algorithms, and machine learning models.
Synthography has several characteristics that set it apart from traditional art and photography. These include:
Synthography has the potential to revolutionize the world of digital art. The combination of artificial intelligence and machine learning allows for the creation of images and animations that would be impossible for human artists to create. The ability to generate unique images and animations from data sets also opens up new possibilities for art, such as creating animations from scientific data or creating images from text.
In addition, Synthography has the potential to democratize the art world by making it easier for people to create digital art. With Synthography algorithms, anyone with access to a computer and the right tools can create digital art, regardless of their artistic skills or experience.
Art has always been a way for human artists to express themselves and communicate their experiences and emotions to others. With the advent of artificial intelligence and machine learning, we are witnessing a new era in the creation of digital art, dubbed Synthography.
Synthography is a form of AI art that involves the creation of images and animations using algorithms and artificial intelligence. It is different from traditional art and photography in several ways, including its automated creation, data-driven approach, emphasis on experimentation, variability, and interactivity.
As the field of Synthography continues to grow and evolve, it has the potential to revolutionize the world of digital art by making it easier for people to create art, opening up new possibilities for artistic expression, and allowing for the creation of images and animations that would be impossible for human artists to create.
Synthography is a new and exciting field with tremendous potential, and I can't wait to see what new and innovative forms of AI art will emerge in the years to come.
