Artificial Lullaby

"Artificial Lullaby" is an art project that merges the realms of memory and artificial intelligence. The project is a multifaceted exploration, intertwining different mediums, both digital and analogue.

Childhood - Illuminations -  Arthur Rimbaud

That idol, black eyes and yellow mop, without parents or court, nobler than Mexican and Flemish fables;
his domain, insolent azure and verdure, runs over beaches called by the shipless waves, names ferociously Greek, Slav, Celt.

At the border of the forest - dream flowers tinkle, flash, and flare, - the girl with orange lips, knees crossed in the clear flood that gushes from the fields, nakedness shaded, traversed, dressed by rainbow, flora, sea.

Ladies who stroll on terraces adjacent to the sea; baby girls and giantesses, superb blacks in the verdigris moss, jewels upright on the rich ground of groves and little thawed gardens, - young mothers and big sisters with eyes full of pilgrimages, sultanas, princesses tyrannical of costume and carriage, little foreign misses and young ladies gently unhappy.

What boredom, the hour of the "dear body" and "dear heart.

At the heart of "Artificial Lullaby" lies a poetic conversation between the artist and the artificial intelligence, spurred by the verses of Arthur Rimbaud's poem "Childhood." The project germinated from a desire to articulate the images and emotions encapsulated in the poem, as the artist sought to convey their personal interpretation to the AI.

The journey, however, didn't stop with Rimbaud's verses. It expanded into a broader, more intimate exploration. The generative animation breathes life into the artist's recollections, stitching together fragments from her childhood. These moving visuals become a cinematic tapestry, weaving the threads of personal history into the project's narrative.

"Artificial Lullaby" is a conversational experiment in the language of images and memories. Through the dance between human recollections and machine interpretation, the project becomes a testament to the enduring power of childhood dreams and the abilityof technology to resurrect andreimagine them.
