  • Is AI art really an art ?

    Artificial intelligence (AI) has the ability to create art that is indistinguishable from that of a human artist. In some cases, AI can create art that is even more realistic than that of a human artist. AI can create art by drawing on data from images, video, and other sources. It can also create art based on user input. AI can create art that is humorous, serious, or any other type of artistic expression. ©Joia Preciosa Some artists believe that AI will eventually replace human artists. Others believe that AI will augment human artists, providing them with additional creative abilities. AI can be used to create art that is more accurate, realistic, or even abstract. AI can also be used to create art that is inspired by specific artists or periods in history. There are a number of companies and organizations that are working on AI-based art projects. For example: Midjourney, DALL-E, Google, Google has developed a project called DeepDream. DeepDream uses AI to create images that are dreamlike and psychedelic. The question is: Is AI art really an art? Even if it is possible to be recognized as an AI artist and to be entitled to sell his works. Many wonder if it is really worthwhile to appropriate a work created with the assistance of an artificial intelligence. Recently, the artist Jason M. Allen won the Blue Ribbon in the Colorado State Fair's Emerging Digital Artists' Fair competition. ©Jason M. Allen His work "Theatre D'opera Spatial" is one of the first AI works to win this prize. The work was created with "Midjourney" an independent research laboratory which produces an artificial intelligence program. But the awarding of this prize has generated complaints and negative reactions from other artists accusing Jason M. Allen of cheating. Mr jason M. Allen will say later that his work had been submitted, specifying that his work had been done with an AI and therefore that he had broken no rules. No matter how AI is used, it is clear that it has the potential to profoundly change art.

  • Architecture in Africa

    Architecture and design in African countries have a long and rich history. From the ancient pyramids of Egypt to the modern skyscrapers of Johannesburg, Africa has a proud tradition of building beautiful things. African architecture is characterized by its diversity. For exemple the ancient structures in Zimbabwe or the modern buildings in South Africa, each country has its own unique style. There are a few general characteristics that can be found in African architecture. First, it is typically less formal than European architecture. Second, African architecture is often characterized by its use of natural materials, such as wood, clay, stone and local materials. African architecture is often associated with the continent's traditional cultures. This architecture is often designed to reflect the local environment and culture. The pyramids of Egypt are known throughout the world but much of African architecture remains unknown. Here are some African architectural : Hikma complex, Niger The Architect Mariam Kamara collaborated with Yasaman Esmaili to restore an old Hausa mosque that had fallen into disrepair, adding community space and a library. Kasubi Tombs, Uganda Kasubi Royal Complex is the burial place of the monarchs of Buganda Kingdom. It was constructed mainly of wood and other organic materials. The interior is designed to replicate a sacred forest and is topped with 52 circular rings to represent each of Buganda's 52 clans. Palace of Emperor Fasilides, Ethiopia This castle is located in the city of Gondar, in the north of Ethiopia, in a fortified enclosure known as "Fasil Ghebbi" . The site includes about twenty palaces, royal buildings, churches, monasteries and unique buildings elaborately decorated. Mapungubwe Interpretation Centre, South Africa Set in a rocky landscape within Mapungubwe National Park, the center won South African architect Peter Rich the 2009 Building of the Year award at the World Architecture Festival. Great Mosque of Djenne, Mali A monument of Islam, the Grand Mosque is the largest earthen structure in the world. The mosque is a symbol of the city of Djenne it is also the greatest achievement of Sudano-Sahelian architecture . Hillbrow Tower Johannesburg, South Africa An unofficial symbol of Johannesburg, the 833-foot-tall (269-meter) Hillbrow Tower was once a must-see tourist attraction for its sweeping views of the city. The tower also had a luxurious slow-rotating restaurant at the top, as well as another luxurious non-rotating restaurant. Unfortunately, for security reasons, the tower was closed to the public in 1981. Africa has many beautiful architectural constructions and listing them all in this article would be endless. Do not hesitate to share in comment the constructions that you had the opportunity to see or the one that inspires you.
