            Abstract

            This piece takes a known traditional art form, fine art portrait painting - its history, style, palette, and knowledge space - and disrupts it into an experience, an emotion and artificial intelligence interactive. We use our Creative Artificial Intelligence System (CAIS) software tools (we write) that take as source a photograph of a interacting viewer in front of our digital canvas and through their selection of an emotion (how they feel or what the effect is that they want to explore) creates and evolves an art portrait of them (Figure 1 & 2). This photograph as source is evolved into a final artwork that uses the rules, styles and elements from our creativity based AI portrait painting system and maps different texture, brush stroke and palette to the various emotions based on survey studies. We want to focus on the emotional journey while interacting with a generative art piece and involving our users/viewer in the meaning making process. This spiral of experiencing, reflecting and making provides a participatory platform for co-creation of ideas, which is visitor focused, open-ended and prepares the viewer for broader, richer, learning experiences.
