Artificial Consciousness - Artificial Art (Long Version)

Published in Mealing, Stuart (Ed.) Computers and Art, Exeter: Intellect, 1997, p.33-53, ISBN 1-871516-60-9


The electronic arts derive their energy and fascination from the relationship between artist and machine. Attempts to automate art are increasingly successful as developments take place in artificial intelligence, artificial creativity and artificial life. However, it may take artificial consciousness to create a totally artificial life. This in turn requires the resolution of a the question: is quantum mechanics inextricably linked with consciousness? The future of a totally artificial art may hinge on this.
