Dr. Chandra, Will I Dream? Surreal Art and Artificial Intelligence


Surrealism's roots in early psychology, which emphasized dreams and the subconscious, made me wonder–what if the mind being portrayed in a surreal artwork were an artificial mind? This thesis is a series of three digital artworks that depict artificial intelligence in a surreal way. What makes us human? Could a machine possess the same qualities that make us human? Could a computer be creative, emotional, or even illogical? Such themes, often explored in science fiction, are what I attempt to convey through my art.
