GETTING TO KNOW YOU:
OPENING RECEPTION : SEPT. 22, 2023 6-8 PM | ON VIEW: SEPT. 22 - NOV. 4
Getting To Know You is an interplay between the technological self and the creative subconscious. From her collaborative relationship with an AI art-generating app, Odum presents lively ceramic sculptures and immersive video projections, accompanied by the AI-generated images that shaped their inception. The collaborative journey sparks more curiosity than insight about the evolving technological landscape, the minds behind the AI app creation, and the depths of the human condition.
