When I think of you I Shiver in Awe presents a series of figurative, yet abstract landscape works by Manolis D. Lemos resulting from a shared emotional expression and a reflection on earth and sea, blurriness and the future. The works depict semi-recognizable earth views and visions created through an artificial intelligence tool, which has been originally designed and "trained" by the artist in collaboration with theoretical computer scientist and MIT professor Constantinos Daskalakis and his team at the MIT Computer Science and AI Lab since 2018. The artist now introduces photographs of Greek landscapes taken by him- self, a large set of his expressive drawings, along with other learning material to the AI, in an attempt to mediate and output images of feeling through the use of a deep learning algorithm. The generated image relies on and is affected by this exact training process, which functions as a central gesture. The image is then transferred on primed and treated linen canvas and is partially oil- painted by the artist who completes or balances the composition and expands its expressive and hybrid qualities. Through this open and collaborative cycle of production which is of political importance to the artist, Manolis D. Lemos aims to blur ideas of authorship, moral responsibility, poetic gesture and emotional expression in a way that embodies a vision that is essentially personal.

 

Manolis D. Lemos (b. 1989) is a Greek artist based in Athens. He studied at the Athens School of Fine Arts and Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London and works in a variety of media such as painting, video, photography, sculpture, installation and sound that focus on the ways we dream about tomorrow and on examples of former states of prosperity that deteriorated reflecting on the ways these could be projected onto the future.
