Claire Silver x Emi Kusano
Christie's Art+Tech Summit
New York, July 2023
Our protagonist: A neo-classic--bold, discerning, unafraid of the strange beauty of the new. A bohemian cyberpunk with an obsession for Grace Kelly & mecha anime, she effortlessly glides through the Harajuku night.
Shinjitai was digitally sculpted & textured with AI art, merging mathematical functions with ancient art from China, Japan, & Eastern and Western Europe. The textures are mixed with aesthetics of global tapestries, then disassembled into vibrant collage. A love-letter from the artists, it's meant to honor the sophistication of experience, the vibrance of youth, the depth of tradition and the promise of the future.
