Atlantis is a mythical island nation first mentioned by the ancient Greek philosopher Plato in his dialogues "Timaeus" and "Critias." According to Plato, Atlantis was a powerful and advanced civilization that existed around 9,000 years before his own time. He described it as a place of great wealth, advanced technology, and a highly organized society. 

 

The VR Atlantis project in the metaverse Neos VR is an art 3D installation for avatars that is inspired by AI-generated images. The project serves as a metaphor for the current exciting state of AI, AI-generated texts and images, akin to the discovery of the lost city of Atlantis. In the same way that the discovery of Atlantis would bring new knowledge and understanding to the ancient world, AI-generated images and texts are making easy accessible knowledge to everyone in our digital age. AI-generated images give us possibilities for how to start a new art project and help us visualize our thoughts. It is a kind of new enlightenment by AI.
The VR Atlantis project aims to provide a unique and immersive experience for avatars, allowing them to explore the virtual environment in deep blue with light and veils. Avatars can unveil and reveal, discover the light that is a metaphor for new information from AI. 
The use of a deep blue colour palette and the metaphor of light hidden behind veils create a sense of mystery and intrigue, inviting the avatars to question their own perceptions and beliefs. The installation encourages the users to slow down and pay attention to the details, immersing themselves in the present moment and fostering a sense of introspection. 

Overall, the VR Atlantis project is an exciting endeavour that will push the boundaries of what is possible with AI-generated art, 3D modelling and metaverse technology, providing a unique and engaging experience for users while raising awareness about the potential of AI in the field of art. The VR Atlantis is a visual experience and a journey of self-discovery.

I redefine collaboration 3D spaces online in the metaverse by creating immersive virtual reality excitement. The metaverse offers a new realm where creativity and productivity can flourish, breaking free from the limitations of traditional physical spaces. I explore the possibilities of the metaverse from the artistic and architectural points of view. I embrace the potential for transforming how we work and interact online.

This project also explores digital and AI approaches to the artistic and architectural creation and design process. As an artist and architect, my work revolves around utilizing architectural elements and spatial qualities from physical spaces and translating them into virtual environments. This process involves a combination of digital tools, including AI-generated images and Rhinoceros 3D, to develop creative 3D models and renders. The final step involves importing the 3D models into Neos VR through FBX files, allowing users and avatars to interact and experience these virtual spaces. 

My project is about working on business meetings online in the metaverse. I imagine 3D space in the metaverse Neos VR where we can work together in unexpected exciting spaces.

AI TEMPLE

AI-generated images under the theme "Midjourney: AI Temple, Inspiration Meadow, Botanical Gardens, Fontana de Trevi represent a harmonious fusion of technology and nature.

The AI Temple emerges as a virtual sanctuary, blending architectural marvels from diverse cultures, creating a place where pixels and spirituality coalesce. Intricately designed, its structure reflects an amalgamation of historical aesthetics and futuristic elements, a testament to the limitless possibilities of AI creativity.

The Inspiration Meadow, a digital expanse of ethereal blooms, captures the essence of creativity at its peak. AI-generated flora intertwines seamlessly, forming an otherworldly tapestry of imagination. This meadow serves as a metaphorical canvas where ideas blossom, inspired by the beauty of the natural world.

Botanical Gardens within this digital universe is a testament to the AI's ability to reimagine and recreate the wonders of biodiversity. Each plant and flower is a unique creation, showcasing the limitless permutations and combinations AI can achieve. The gardens are a celebration of innovation, where the boundaries between the organic and the synthetic blur.

Fontana de Trevi, a symbol of artistic grandeur, finds its digital counterpart in this AI-generated realm. The flowing waters take on a surreal quality, embodying the fluidity of ideas that emerge from the collaborative dance between human creativity and artificial intelligence. The fountain becomes a source of inspiration, with each droplet telling a story of innovation and imagination.

 The AI-generated images evoke emotions and spark creativity, inviting individuals to contemplate the intersection of technology and artistic expression.
