From a chronic illness to a meteoric rise as an A.I.-Collaborative Artist, meet Claire Silver.  Claire is an anonymous artist who works with oil, acrylic, collage, photography, and different digital mediums. By blending classical styles and mythos into her art, she collaboratively produces work that feels at once familiar and strange, exploring themes of innocence, trauma, the hero's journey, and how our view of them will change in an increasingly transhumanist future. Claire’s art can be found in the permanent collection of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art in addition to being featured at Sotheby's London and Christie's New York. Her work has been exhibited in galleries, museums, and festivals around the world, and she’s been featured in The New York Times, WIRED, Fortune, NPR, and countless podcasts. You’re in for a treat today to hear from Claire’s imaginative mind. She's a deep thinker and is vocal in her belief that the rise of A.I. has ushered in a new paradigm, replacing the barrier of skill with taste. For those who watch the video version of this interview, you’ll see Claire’s avatar that uses motion capture in real-time to reflect her facial gestures! In this episode, you’ll also hear Claire’s origin story on how A.I. changed the trajectory of her life, providing her a vehicle for expression with her chronic illness, and why she believes in radical accessibility. We also discuss Claire’s online anonymity, transhumanism, and her perspective on how artists can find their unique signature. You’ll also discover what qualia is and how Claire sees it as AGI’s litmus test, how she aims to evoke the sensation of qualia in her art, and the power of touchstone experiences. Join the conversation where Claire shares her passion, art, and childlike wonderment of GenAI!
