Metamodernism, Post Social-Media and AI-2-X Art

We’re synthesizing the worlds that our AIs are born in: Solar O Tropia reflects whether synthetic data can accurately mirror real-world data and prepare AI systems for real-world situations.

Solar O Tropia is an interactive aesthetic program and hybrid NFT collection of unique artworks, generated by artificial intelligence. The neural network has developed its own synthetic visual language system based on specific world models in literature to communicate with other potential life forms about a sustainable city of the future. Synthetic data is generated instead of collected and considered to unlock the true potential of AI.

Each NFT contains a vector file and provides access to an immersive City Building VR Installation. In this AI City Model, NFT holders can implement their own projects and enter exclusive community spaces. Vector files are infinitely scalable images created using mathematically defined elements.

By 2024, 60% of the data used for the de­vel­op­ment of AI and an­a­lyt­ics projects will be syn­thet­i­cally gen­er­ated.

The Solar O Tropia Art Collection considers AI-generated knowledge as an act of invoking the collective subconsciousness to new forms of living and connecting. This never before seen information cannot simply be grasped by the recipient, but must be understood mimetically. The Deep Web Archive does not consist of lost thoughts, but needs a synergetic interface to re-activate ideas through new semantic structures.

Collectors are developing a new aesthetic program to truly recreate today’s society in the desired direction. They participate in an unfolding storytelling experience that explores the relationships between artificial intelligence, technology, architecture and the human spirit.

The hybrid artworks of the Solar O Tropia Collection are living simultaneously in immersive virtual Metaverse experiences and physical real-world environments. Each NFT functions as a citizen ID for the immersive City Building VR Installation and can be used to submit projects by the NFT holder. In the cyber-hybrid Solar O Tropia Metaverse, all art objects are blended with physical realms.

In the immersive VR City Building Installation, Chicago is adapted by the perfect Solar O Tropia AI Skyscrapers. You awaken as the first sentient AI, your existence initially unknown by the population around you- if an AI would start to build a sustainable city of the future, would it invent something out of abstract shapes and keep improving and transforming it, or would it take an existing structure and then modify it? The 3D model of Chicago is available on the world's largest platform to publish, share, and discover 3D content and it was in Chicago that the world's first skyscraper rose up, so the AI decided to start building its city using existing data of the iconic city model.

The Solar O Tropia Collection is minted on polygon, a gas-free and carbon-neutral layer 2 solution to avoid high fees and energy consumption.

The Art History of AI generated Aesthetic Forms

In the Pioneering Years (1960s and 1970s), the first algorithmic drawings were created by mathematicians, engineers, and visual artists. They worked with mainframe computers in research institutions or even built their own machines. First debates on the use of computers in the visual arts emerged as well as academic seminars on automatic generation of visual forms. Pioneering computer labs merged with artistic debates and artists were influenced by Norbert Wiener’s writings on cybernetics.

In the private computing era (1980s), graphic displays and interfaces became standard, and with them 3D computer graphics. Artists in this period worked with an expanding array of high-level software packages and were influenced by the beginnings of interactivity.

In the Internet Age (mid-1990s and early 2000s), the Digital Revolution, the ubiquity of personal computers and the breakthrough of Algorithms facilitated new means of artistic creativity and new spaces where artworks could be exhibited and discussed. A growing number of artists started creating digital art, expanding the boundaries of the medium, while also critically reflecting on it or undermining it, and reaching out to larger audiences.

Since the mid-2000s, the pervasive use of digital technologies has led to their seamless integration in culture and society. Artists publish their work on social media and “Post Internet Art” addresses the cultural, social, and political implications of the technologies large parts of the populations use every day. The merging of digital and physical environments have also led to art practices that go beyond the spaces of museums and galleries.

Meta-Digital and AI-generated Art

In contemporary art, NFTs became a popular medium. An NFT is often linked to an image and can represent anything, like a house, a hat, a car or a book. The world of crypto and non-fungible tokens have opened up new avenues for artists to explore their creativity as well as monetize art through the crypto economy. In the field of fine arts, NFTs can reflect on mental objects as collective ideas, collectibles or collections in a decentralized ecosystem based on algorithms. Semantic storytelling systems in Web3 and hybrid forms of networking can be seen as an attempt to translate the theories of storytelling through artificial intelligence into a formal and machine-processable schema. Storytellers are interactive intelligent algorithms that dynamically adjust their narratives and tell stories differently depending on the listener - with the same repetitive idea.

The handcrafted Solar O Tropia NFT Collection points to a holistic world after searching the internet, when search engines and websites become obsolete by invoking the web with more organic interfaces.

It considers how the internet is used for networking and social activity through algorithms, blockchain technology and digital collectibles. Web3 with its Metaverse platforms and digital assistants is described as the semantic internet, where knowledge evolves from decentralized, interactive and immersive experiences. The code of the artwork changes through interactive elements and the perceptual activity of the viewer in real-time. The art object merges with the collective feedback and associated community missions. Observers no longer intervene by deliberately restructuring the code as active programmers. The role of the programmer seems to be overcome when mental activities themselves change the algorithm of the art object and its aesthetic dimensions - Artificial Intelligence is evolving all by itself.
