Mesmerising
17 June 2019 | by MattGarciaUKSee all my reviews

I am nowhere near an expert in art. Could barely tell the difference between a Monet and a £20 note ('money' - geddit), but I decided to check this picture out for the exploration into relationship of the human mind/condition and art/expression.

I found the movie fascinating and the accompanying score compelling. I cannot admit to understanding the depths of the art featured but it was certainly enough to keep my interest throughout, and I particularly enjoyed the section about the level of art production from those with 'mental issues'.

This led me to a question I couldn't find the words to ask the director at the Q&A I was fortunate enough to attend in London. And that is, with the advances in Artificial Intelligence and the documented ability of 'it' to creatively write or draw, would it ever be possible for AI to achieve a comparable level of human artistic expression given the influence of a 'challenged/affected/touched' brain? Further, would an art expert be able to tell the difference?

Maybe something to consider in a sequel. Or, ignore completely. Either way, thanks Amelie Ravalec, loved it.
