About the concept
This concept began with a single lucid dream and a quest to recreate it. In the search for answers, James pondered the existence of the ethereal figures that inhabit dreamscapes. Are they people we know and love? Or individuals who have briefly passed us in an encounter, subconsciously absorbed into our minds without reflection. Do they exist at all, or are they mere figments of our imagination, spliced together from multiple sublinimal touch points?
His creative journey took a riveting turn when he introduced Artificial Intelligence (AI) into the equation, infusing life into these elusive dream characters. AI blurs the boundaries between reality and imagination, much like a lucid dream. It merges the machine’s perception and hallucinations, splicing together what it perciecves to be real, resulting in a vibrant tapestry of “Electric Dreams” that dissolves the lines between art and technology, melding reality with fantasy.
In an era where art and technology intertwine, “Electric Dreams” reflects an exploration of the boundaries of creativity and the evolving relationship between humans and machines and dreams and reality.
‘I make art from what AI perceives to be real beings. Whether you perceive the beings as real or not is the question I am inviting.’
