‘Neuronal Visions’ exhibition

Date: 23.05.2024 - 30.06.2024
Place: Library of the JU Faculty of Physics, Astronomy and Applied Computer Science, ul. Łojasiewicza 11
‘Neuronal Visions’ exhibition

The exhibition shows the works by Prof. Romuald Janik – images generated by neural networks whose neural connections have been distorted by the author, and thus their inner ‘vision of the world’ changed into a purely individual one, no longer strongly linked to the reality.

 

The exhibited works provide insight into these alternative worlds, partly oneiric and partly surreal, capable of giving an impression of personal visions of these ‘neuronal entities’, as reflected in the exhibition’s title. The largely indefinable character of these images, resulting from the presence of abstract, quasi-organic or quasi-technical elements, leads to a wide range of possible subjective interpretations, whose meaning is created exclusively by the viewer.   

Prof. Romuald Janik is a staff member of the Institute of Theoretical Physics at the JU Faculty of Physics, Astronomy and Applied Computer Science. His scientific interests focus mainly on string theory, and more recently also on artificial intelligence and neural networks. He has a passion for broadly understood visual arts, especially photography. Prof. Janik’s experiments with neural networks resulted in quite unexpected emergence of quasi-artistic imaging by the networks that have never had contact with human-made art. This led to the current exhibition, which has been the second one devoted to this topic, , after ‘Creatio ex Machina. The internal worlds of neural networks’, held in Toruń in 2022.
