'Character Morph' is the first, the 'Genesis,' piece from my 'Spectral Shift' collection. It is special because it combines digital mistakes, or 'glitches', with computer code, and the unique habits of AI. These all move together to make a unique and beautiful language of art. What's really exciting is that this artwork and the entire collection are always changing and growing. You just never know what new piece might show up next! It's a bit like a magical, never-ending story, filled with memories, who we are, and imaginary worlds. Each piece of art is made with special and custom made tools, like a physical machine called a modular synth, digital Glitch Candy Factory and custom-made AI models. This shows us that art has no limits and can always surprise us. In a great story, the characters, the world they live in, the sounds, and the movement all come together. That's what happens here too. They come together to create a beautiful, bright picture that's a bit messy, kind of like life, telling a unique story. So, it's always a fun surprise to come back and see what's new!
