Daniel Ambrosi

For Daniel Ambrosi, computational photography is about more than just creating a sense of place. It’s about conveying how we feel about the environment—viscerally, cognitively, and emotionally.

Abstract Dreams

Computational Photography + Artificial Intelligence

The next step in the evolution of our Dreamscapes project, this collection further dissociates the generated artwork from the underlying photography and toward the subconscious. These Abstract Dream video loops are designed to invoke a meditative response that yields illusions of depth perception as similar features recede or advance through changes in colors and textures. 

The Process


About Daniel Ambrosi

Daniel Ambrosi is one of the founding creators of the emerging AI art movement and is noted for the nuanced balance he achieves in human-AI hybrid art. He has been exploring novel methods of visual presentation for almost 40 years since Cornell University, where he earned a Bachelor of Architecture degree and a Masters in 3D Graphics. In 2011, Daniel devised a unique form of computational photography that generates exceptionally immersive landscape images.

Featured Sessions

Dinner with Strangers: Digital to Physical...and Back Again

Artists Pindar Van Arman and Daniel Ambrosi take very different approaches to using artificial intelligence in their artworks, but they have a shared focus on making physical AI-augmented artifacts. According to the artists, we are three-dimensional creatures living in a 3D world, but we experience that world entirely within our unlit skulls. Does it or should it matter whether the art artifact is comprised of bits or atoms?

AI Representing Natural Forms in Art

It's said that art imitates life, but what if that art is flora and fauna created by an artist using artificial intelligence? Join a discussion with artists Sofia Crespo, Feileacan McCormick, Anna Ridler, and Daniel Ambrosi and NVIDIA technical specialist Chris Hebert to explore how they use AI in their creative process of generating interpretations of natural forms.
