"The AI Stone Carver" is a series of work that explores an antithetical approach to the relationship between machine and the human, brought on by the advent of AI diffusion technologies. Instead of the industrial paradigm of human-ideation to machine-fabrication, we now reverse this relationship and allow machine-ideation followed by human-fabrication.
We first explored the latent space of diffusion A.I. models to re-envision classical architectural elements through a new lens of futurist design narrative. Then, a computational model is developed to finetune and rationalize the geometry for production. Lastly, we incorporate human-fabrication, through skilled stone carving, creating a machine-driven concept that features human craftsmanship.
