Viv: AI for Creative Inspiration

Viv is an AI artist that creates small, 3D-printable vases that have been inspired by an image. As a computational creativity research project, it investigates how to believably model creative inspiration across media: just as a human sculptor may be inspired by a photograph of a scene, or a human painter may be inspired by a piece of music, how can an AI capture the aesthetic characteristics and qualities from one creative domain and transfer them to new artifacts in a different domain? The Viv project also aims to examine how humans interact with an AI artist.
