How do artistic experiments with artificial intelligence impact human-centered notions of creative agency, authorship and ownership?
In his new book, Martin Zeilinger offers a wide-ranging discussion of contemporary digital art practices, and the philosophical and technical considerations of AI. Zeilinger explores posthumanist thought as it relates to emerging issues of intellectual property and the commons. The book invites readers to consider new types of creative practice, rethink the role of the author or singular artist, as well as their originality and unique creative expression.
