Makerplace AI Art Hackathon: Revolutionizing The AI Art Race
Building upon the recent introduction of MakersPlace’s AI Generative Art category, the platform continues to champion creators in the AI art space. The hackathon is in many ways a collaboration between humans and machines. MakersPlace encourages the use of AI technology as a creative tool and partner in the artistic process.
During the AI Art Hackathon, BLΛC, Illustrata, DVK the artist, and DigitalCoy will derive inspiration from a poem by Sasha Stiles. This poem is available for purchase on MakersPlace and licensed under CC0. Attendees then witness the real-time creation of art, immersing themselves in the artistic process. The completed artworks will then be auctioned as one-of-a-kind pieces on MakersPlace starting from June 15, 2023!
Trevor Jones and Hackatao will introduce mystery artifacts into the art creation process, surprising the participating artists and challenging them to think on their feet. These sketches are then sold as Limited Editions during NFC Lisbon, with Trevor Jones and Hackatao credited as collaborators, providing collectors with a tangible piece of the creative process.
A key figure in the AI Art Hackathon is Coldie. Coldie is an award-winning digital artist renowned for its expertise in stereoscopic 3D art. Coldie curates the participating artists’ artworks into a cohesive collage. Next, he employs Artmatr’s proprietary MATR robot to transform their sketches into robotically-painted physical works. Subsequently, Coldie merges these paintings into a unique physical artwork. This art features the signatures of Coldie, Trevor Jones, and the participating artists. Moreover, Coldie will remix the physical versions of the artists’ 1/1s to create digital stereoscopic ‘phygital’ artworks. These will then be available for sale in late July or August 2023.
What’s In It For Collectors?
