The Opthamologists

By  Richard Paul 2024

‘The Opthamologists’ are from 'Kaolin and morphine,' an ongoing series of 3D lenticular photographic prints initially imagined by AI: convincing similcra of possible but non-existent contemporary artefacts. I wanted to create new versions of familiar objects; my own hybrids.

I used an AI program to create virtual models with images of my concrete sculptures. I prompted the program through text descriptions to imagine heads and masks in various materials. After trying many different iterations, I selected the most materially convincing (as artefacts) and converted these small 2D images into 3D and printed them as lenticulars.
