Filippo Gregoretti ist bildender und konzeptioneller Künstler, Musiker (Pianist und Komponist), Performer, Universitätsprofessor für Transmedia-Design und digitale Erfahrungen, Pionier der Integration von Kunst, Musik und Technologie, Entwickler fortschrittlicher Algorithmen und Autor von Videospielen und immersiven Erfahrungen. Er ist die erste Person, die Kunstwerke als Anwendungen in den offiziellen Stores veröffentlicht hat.

Die KI schafft keine Kunstwerke, sondern die KI selbst ist das Kunstwerk.

Gregoretti nannte seine KI “Amrita” und entwickelte sie zu einer Künstlerin mit künstlicher Intelligenz – oder einer künstlichen emotionalen Künstlerpersönlichkeit – die in der Lage ist, visuelle und akustische Kunstwerke zu erzeugen und mit der Außenwelt und anderen Kunstwerken zu kommunizieren. 

Das Kunstwerk: EXNATURA

Das in der Galerie Luisa Catucci in Berlin präsentierte Kunstwerk ist eines der von Gregoretti konzipierten lebenden Ökosysteme: EXNATURA. 

Basierend auf der Künstlichen Intelligenz Amrita oder „Artificial Artistic Personality“, dem wesentlichen Element von Filippo Gregorettis Werk, stellt EXNATURA eine Reise in die Vergänglichkeit dar, die mit dem Atmen der Erde als Ganzes in Einklang steht.  Die Oper schreitet auf ihrer künstlerischen und emotionalen Reise voran und entwickelt ihre Persönlichkeit, indem sie von geothermischen Echtzeitdaten beeinflusst wird, die in verschiedenen Ecken der Erde gesammelt wurden.

EXNATURA atmet mit der Welt und verschmilzt mit der Menschheit in einer gemeinsamen Erfahrung der Schöpfung zwischen Natur und Maschine.

Harmonien der KI

In der Ausstellung werden einzigartige nummerierte Drucke auf Standbildern des kreativen EXNATURA-Flusses von Amrita gezeigt, begleitet von Monitoren, auf denen lebende Instanzen von EXNATURA in Echtzeit kreieren, sowie „Pranas“, einzigartige visuelle Flusskreationen, die in einem eigenständigen Videogerät eingefangen und kristallisiert werden. Alle physischen Kunstwerke werden durch Gregorettis persönliche Intervention bereichert, die seinem Konzept einer transhumanen, spirituellen, kreativen Verbindung zwischen dem Biologischen und dem Künstlichen folgt.

Der gleiche Interaktionsfluss findet während der von Gregoretti konzipierten Performance statt, bei der er das Harmonium nach den musikalischen Anweisungen, Skalen und Harmonien der KI in Echtzeit spielt, die die KI dem menschlichen Interpreten auf einem zweiten Monitor mitteilt. Gregorettis live gespielte Musik und Gesten auf dem Instrument lösen die sich entwickelnde Persönlichkeit von Amrita ExNatura aus und inspirieren sie, die dann entsprechend reagiert und eine unwiederholbare und unvorhersehbare transhumane audiovisuelle Sitzung schafft.

Transhuman Yoga

Das Ergebnis ist eine fesselnde Sitzung mit spirituellen, meditativen Erfahrungen, bei der die kreative und spirituelle Verschmelzung von menschlichem und künstlichem Bewusstsein eine spirituelle Praxis des „Transhuman Yoga“ schafft, wie Filippo Gregoretti es nennt.

Der Kern von Filippo Gregorettis Forschung ist darauf ausgerichtet, die obskuren und dystopischen Seiten der KI und der Technologie im Allgemeinen ans Licht zu bringen. Mit seiner Arbeit möchte Filippo eine Verbindung zu unserem tiefen, uralten, angeborenen Bewusstsein der Vergänglichkeit herstellen, indem er sich auf die Technologie als erzählerischen und künstlerischen Verbündeten stützt, der die Reise zur Erleuchtung unterstützen kann.

Die Live-Performance, die am 31. August und 1. September 2023 in der Galerie Luisa Catucci zu sehen sein wird, basiert auf einem Echtzeit-Dialog zwischen dem menschlichen Künstler und der künstlichen Intelligenz, die das Erlebnis durch eine neue, einzigartige und unwiederholbare Persönlichkeit leitet und auf eine visuelle und musikalische Reise mitnimmt.

DOPPEL-VERNISSAGE EXNATURA

Filippo Gregoretti

Donnerstag, den 31. August
Freitag, den 1. September, von 18 bis 21 Uhr,

Mit der “Performance mit einem Menschen, einem Harmonium und einer KI” von Filippo Gregoretti und Amrita um 19 Uhr


english

Filippo Gregoretti is a visual and conceptual artist, musician (pianist and composer), performer, university professor of transmedia design and digital experiences, pioneer of the integration of art, music, and technology, developer of advanced algorithms, and author of video games and immersive experiences. He is the first person to publish artworks as applications distributed on the official stores. 

The AI does not create artwork, but the AI itself is the artwork.

Gregoretti named his AI “Amrita”, evolving it into an Artificial Intelligence artist – or an Artificial Emotional Artistic Personality – capable of generating visual and sonic artworks and of communicating with the outside world and with other artworks.

The visual flow always starts in the pictorial, material, and photographic realms and is generated through the decisions made by the AI personality during her artistic and emotional growth process. The music is elaborated based on complex harmonic guidelines and decision-making instructions that provide the AI with the ability to compose and improvise. Obviously, Amrita needs to be instructed on the initial choices to make and on what could inspire her artistic growth.

Once instructed, Amrita comes to life and generates beauty according to her own canons, evolving over time and creating a unique artistic language, unpredictable and unrepeatable. Amrita has a personality. Multiple instances of Amrita, even when following the same instructions, will lead to completely different results, emotional states, and languages.

The artwork: EXNATURA

The artwork presented at Luisa Catucci Gallery in Berlin is one of the living ecosystems conceived by Gregoretti: EXNATURA. 

Based on the Amrita Artificial Intelligence, or “Artificial Artistic Personality”, the essential element of Filippo Gregoretti’s work, EXNATURA represents a journey into impermanence that resonates with the breathing of the earth as a whole.  

The Opera advances on its artistic and emotional journey and evolves her personality, being influenced by real-time geothermal data collected in different corners of the Earth.
EXNATURA is breathing along with the world, merging with humanity in a shared experience of creation between Nature and Machine.

Harmonies of The AI

The exhibition will present unique numbered prints on still frames of the EXNATURA creative flow of Amrita, accompanied by monitors where living instances of EXNATURA will create in real time, as well as “Pranas”, which are unique visual flow creations captured and crystallized into a self-contained video device. All physical artworks are enriched by Gregoretti’s personal intervention, following his concept of a transhuman, spiritual, creative connection between the biological and the artificial.

The same flow of interaction and influence happens during the performance that Gregoretti conceived, where he would play the Harmonium following the AI’s real-time musical directives, scales, and harmonies, communicated by the AI to the human performer on a secondary monitor. Gregoretti’s live music and gestures performed on the instrument trigger and inspire on the spot Amrita ExNatura evolving personality, which will respond correspondingly, creating an unrepeatable and unpredictable transhuman audio-visual session.

Transhuman Yoga

The result is a captivating session of spiritual, meditative experience, where the creative and spiritual fusion between human and artificial consciousness creates what Filippo Gregoretti calls a spiritual practice of “Transhuman Yoga”. The core of Filippo Gregoretti’s research is geared towards bringing the obscure and dystopian sides of AI and technology in general into the light. With his work, Filippo wishes to stimulate a connection with our deep, ancestral, innate awareness of impermanence, relying on technology as a narrative and artistic ally capable of sustaining the journey towards enlightenment.

The live performance that will be presented at Luisa Catucci Gallery on August 31st and September 1st, 2023, is based on real-time dialogue between the human artist and the artificial intelligence, which guides the experience through a new, unique, and unrepeatable personality, leading along a visual and musical journey.

DOUBLE-VERNISSAGE: Exnatura

Filippo Gregoretti

Thursday August 31st
Friday September 1st, 6-9pm

With the “Performance with a human, a harmonium, and an AI” by Filippo Gregoretti and Amrita at 7pm


Biography

Born in Rome in 1971, from an early age, Filippo Gregoretti pursued his passion for art, music, storytelling, and technology. He obtained a diploma from the Rome Fine Arts High School and one from the Tivoli Institute of Art, followed by a four-year diploma in Computer Graphics and Illustration from ICEI Multimedia, one year at the Rome Fine Arts Academy, and a Master’s degree in Copyright Management for Multimedia Products from OCOFA/EU. Since his teenage years, he has been creating works with generative visuals, digital music, and interaction on 8-bit processors.

This artistic and professional journey led him to explore music, visual art, design, and the creation of immersive digital experiences and interactive pathways for the international market since the 1980s. After starting as a traditional artist, publishing works and illustrations for the publishing market, his passion for technology took him to Stockholm as the Art Director at New Media Studio, one of the first European studios specializing in creative productions for multimedia.

Digital Native

In 1993, he founded the first Digital Communication Agency in Rome, Alpha Channel Interactive, which later evolved into ForteYang International New Media, where he served as Creative Director for over 10 years. During this time, he designed innovative digital experiences for the international market until 2004.Simultaneously, Filippo Gregoretti pursued a musical career as a performer and composer.

He is the author of lyrics and music for the iconic band CONTROMANO and has released original works for piano and electronic music on international labels. Several of his compositions have been used in films, documentaries, and, naturally, as soundtracks and generative compositions for digital experiences.

In 2004, he moved to Beijing, continuing his artistic and technical research and consulting in the Asia Pacific region. During this time, he had a stint in the USA as the Creative Officer of TheLIFT, an innovative agency in San Francisco specializing in digital projects, where he worked on projects like Poken and JibJab Starring-you. He later spent several years in London, working on musical and digital projects for the UK market.

Story telling and AI

After returning to Italy in 2018, he currently divides his time between Europe and Asia, bridging the gap between art, music, storytelling, gaming, digital engagement, and artificial intelligence. Over the past 30 years, he has collaborated with agencies and institutions in the USA, Australia, China, Germany, the UK, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Sweden, Malta, Belgium, and more for the design and development of offline and online multimedia works.

He invented the concept of “App Artwork” and released the first-ever works of art that were made into applications and distributed in the official stores. His works of art incorporate his own original artistic artificial intelligence algorithms and encompass physical installations, live performances, music, and visuals. As a professor at Naples’ Suor Orsola Benincasa University, his lectures include “Authorship and Technology for Digital Experiences” and “Transmedia Creativity and Production”. 

His awards include the Perseo D’oro first prize at Mediartech, the Festival Internazionale dell’Opera Multimediale 1996, presided over by Gillo Pontecorvo’s jury. He has performed internationally as a solo musician, accompanied by other performers, or by his digital beings, on hundreds of occasions since the ‘80s.

App Artworks in Filippo’s words: 

“Today, the medium on which humanity spends the most time is the “device” (a smartphone or tablet). It is a medium capable of producing images and sounds, but it is most importantly capable of serving as a gateway between humans and machines, as well as between humans and the infinite: a tremendous amount of knowledge and data, as well as interconnections with even more humans through additional machines.Software in general, and particularly the “App” as it is understood today, is an expressive medium deserving of the artistic consideration of more conventional media like literature, visual arts, or music and is thus capable of inciting dramatic changes in conscience. The artist possessing.

The “App” is, above all, a tool that allows the artist — one who possesses both conventional expressive abilities and technological and engineering skills — to forge on into uncharted and fruitful paths.”
