Offering a critique of the sociopolitical underpinnings of AI, AI Art: Machine Visions and Warped Dreams raises profound questions about today’s artistic and creative conditions.

AI Art includes a project from Zylinska’s own art work titled “View from the Window”, which explores human and non-human forms of intelligence, perception, and action. The book ends with speculations about future art – and the future of art.
