Life In West America is a collection of 500 artificial intelligence-created art NFTs created by Finnish artist Roope Rainisto. Each piece in the collection is generated from a custom-trained AI model
Life In West America is a post-photography project delving deep into the complexities of the American landscape: the land as a concept, as an ideal, and into the stories and identities of the people inhabiting this vast landscape.
Drawing inspiration from the early days of American color photography, the collection combines the visual language of traditional photography with the limitless artifice of AI. We go on a road trip that is both nostalgic and futuristic, inviting the viewers to question their perceptions of reality.
One day in the future AI-based generative models will learn and observe the rules of reality, becoming experts. Today diffusion-based generative methods present a rare example of shoshin – the beginner’s mind, full of possibilities, open to new ideas, capable of evocative dreams.
The dreamlike artefacts of generative methods are not hidden but celebrated, creating a pioneering post-photographic visual language. The collection also acts as a time capsule, capturing a fleeting moment of generative technology. One day the beginner will become the expert, and the moment will be lost.
