The AI-driven art features the work of digital media artist Orkhan Mammadov and is curated by the Creative Director and founder of Generative Gallery, Ivan Nefedkin.

Mammadov is an art-tech visionary and cultural preservationist and is known for using visual effects and virtual realities to honour cultural history and heritage in an increasingly modern world.

In this exhibition, he draws attention to the Eastern custom of carpet weaving. The immersive experience consists of 150,000 traditional carpet compositions – all of which have been digitalized. An algorithm then recognises the motifs, patterns, sketches and calligraphic shapes within the carpets to create an entirely new mesmerising pattern which is projected onto the gallery’s walls.

The exhibition perfectly bridges together a historical element with AI – a new artistic approach which is taking the world by storm.

Speaking on the exhibition, the artist stated he is thrilled to team up with the gallery and to provide a chance to experience this new immersive exhibition.
