In a pioneering initiative commissioned by Lendlease, the world witnesses the premiere of ‘Natural Rhythms of Australia,’ an expansive generative AI digital art exhibition meticulously crafted by VANDAL AI ATELIER for Darling Quarter North.
This groundbreaking exhibition, designed for the redevelopment of Darling Quarter North, unfolds on a cutting-edge 47 sqm ultra-high-definition LED display, offering visibility from various vantage points throughout the precinct.
“Natural Rhythms of Australia’ represents a year-long collaborative effort, employing a tailor-made suite of artificial intelligence tools exclusively developed by VANDAL”Chris Scott, Creative Director at VANDAL
“The outcome is an unparalleled achievement in seamlessly rendered, ultra-high-resolution motion digital art, driven by generative artificial intelligence”Emile Rademeyer, Executive Director of Creative Strategy
Encompassing over 130 minutes of generative motion digital art, the exhibition narrates the tale of Australia’s diverse flora, fauna, and climate across evolving seasons. Tracey Taylor, Executive Producer, described it as “a captivating ecological journey through natural and environmental events in Australia.”
Spanning four films, ‘Natural Rhythms of Australia‘ portrays sequential transformations and triggers linked to specific times in the yearly cycle, all generated through VANDAL’s customized AI toolset. From subtle shifts in the atmosphere and soil to distinct patterns in plant life and animal behavior, the art illuminates the idea that seasons are not confined to calendar months but follow a cyclical rhythm refined over the billions of years of our planet’s existence.
“AI algorithms, responsible for the generation of the art itself, operate from an extensive dataset of unique and custom-trained imagery. Our machine learning process involved training the AI model with curated images, empowering VANDAL with ultimate control and precision in achieving our desired artistic results.”Joseph Pole, VANDAL Animation AI Lead
Open to the public at Darling Quarter North, ‘Natural Rhythms of Australia’ promises a mesmerizing experience for the next 12 months, showcasing the seamless integration of art, technology, and artificial intelligence.
The exhibition, ‘Natural Rhythms of Australia,’ is an embodiment of VANDAL’s passion for creativity, art, and technology, as expressed by Taylor: “VANDAL’s AI ATELIER is born out of our dedication to embracing AI as an integral production tool and creative partner, evolving alongside the dynamic landscape of this mind-bending technology.”
