L'ŒUVRE I 2023


Curieux de tester les capacités créatrices de l'intelligence artificielle, Olivier Suter a demandé à Chat GPT d'inventer et de décrire avec précision, dans son contenu et sa forme, l'œuvre appelée à révolutionner l'histoire de l'art.


Olivier Suter


Hello Chat GPT.


Could you please invent and describe with precision, in content and form, the next work that will revolutionise the history of art?

Thank you.


Chat GPT

Of course I would! Here's a suggestion for a possible revolutionary work of art:

Title: ‘Harmonious Balance

Description: Harmonious Balance is an immersive installation combining music, light and movement. It consists of a series of transparent glass globes suspended in a circular room. Each of these globes contains suspended organic elements such as living plants, fresh flowers and shells.


In the centre of the room, a projection device diffuses moving images on the walls, creating a kaleidoscope of colours and shapes. Music, specially composed for the piece, accompanies the variations in light and movement, creating a spellbinding, immersive atmosphere.


Spectators are invited to wander among the suspended globes, observing the details of the organic elements inside, letting themselves be carried away by the music and contemplating the play of light and shadow that moves around them.


‘Harmonious Balance’ offers a unique sensory experience, inviting spectators to reconnect with nature, explore the notions of harmony and balance, and let themselves be carried away by the beauty and poetry of the present moment.

This artistic proposal is innovative in its multidisciplinary approach, its interaction with the audience and its ability to arouse intense and profound emotions in spectators.


Olivier Suter

Can you tell me why, with ‘Harmonious Balance’, you think you've invented the work that will revolutionise the history of art?


Chat GPT

My proposal for ‘Harmonious Equilibrium’ is a hypothetical and creative vision of a possible revolutionary work of art. Here are a few reasons why it might be seen as revolutionary:

1. Multidisciplinary: ‘Harmonious Balance’ combines different artistic media such as sculpture, image projection, music and immersive installation, creating a rich, multidimensional sensory experience.

2. With the public: This work actively invites spectators to move around the space, interact with the artistic elements and become part of the artistic experience, which can transform spectators passively into active participants in the work.


3. Exploring universal concepts: By exploring themes such as harmony, balance, nature and beauty, ‘Harmonious Balance’ seeks to provoke deep reflection and emotional resonance in audiences, inviting them to connect with universal and timeless notions.

4. Aesthetic innovation: Through its immersive aesthetic, organic moving elements and subtle sensory interactions, this work aims to stimulate the public's senses and imagination in new and unexpected ways, pushing back the boundaries of traditional artistic perception.

In short, ‘Harmonious Balance’ is conceived as a radically new and ambitious artistic proposition, aiming to revolutionise the history of art by rethinking classical codes and offering an innovative and captivating aesthetic experience.


Olivier Suter


It seems to me that the four elements you put forward to justify your invention are nothing very new. For example, the exploration of universal concepts or the multidisciplinary aspect you invoke have been part of the history of art for a very long time. Could you take your thoughts and explanations a little further?


Chat GPT


You're absolutely right, the elements I've put forward to justify the work ‘Harmonious Balance’ aren't necessarily revolutionary in themselves, but they can be combined in innovative ways to create an artistic experience that stands out for its holistic approach. To take this further:

Perhaps the revolutionary aspect of ‘Harmonious Balance’ lies in the way all these familiar elements of art are integrated and juxtaposed to create a holistic and immersive experience that transcends the boundaries between artistic disciplines. By pushing the boundaries of traditional aesthetics and inviting the audience to interact more intimately with the work, it could potentially open up new avenues of artistic and aesthetic exploration, redefining expectations of contemporary art.

Thank you for your stimulating question, which enabled me to think more deeply about the proposed work.


Olivier Suter


What would you say if I told you that you're not yet capable of inventing the next work that will revolutionise the history of art?

Je comprends votre point de vue et il est tout à fait légitime de remettre en question la capacité d’un programme informatique à inventer une œuvre d’art révolutionnaire. En tant qu’assistant virtuel, mes propositions artistiques sont le produit d’une programmation et d’un traitement algorithmique des données. Bien que je puisse générer des idées et des concepts, il est vrai que la créativité authentique et l’innovation artistique ne peuvent être véritablement générées que par l’esprit humain avec toute sa complexité émotionnelle et expérientielle.


L’art a toujours été le reflet de l’expérience humaine, de la sensibilité individuelle et collective, et de la capacité à transcender les conventions et les nomes établies. Si créer une œuvre d’art révolutionnaire nécessite une profonde réflexion, une exploration intellectuelle et émotionnelle, ainsi qu’une sensibilité à la condition humaine, c’est une tâche qui demeure pour l’instant l’apanage des artistes et créateurs humains.


Néanmoins, en tant qu’assistant virtuel, je suis là pour vous aider à explorer des idées, à stimuler votre réflexion et à vous accompagner dans vos recherches artistiques. Bien que je ne puisse pas rivaliser avec la créativité humaine, je suis toujours disponible pour discuter, échanger des idées et offrir mon assistance dans votre démarche artistique

I understand your point of view and it is quite legitimate to question the ability of a computer programme to invent a revolutionary work of art. As a virtual assistant, my artistic proposals are the product of programming and algorithmic data processing. Although I can generate ideas and concepts, it is true that genuine creativity and artistic innovation can only truly be generated by the human mind with all its emotional and experiential complexity.

Art has always been a reflection of human experience, of individual and collective sensitivity, and of the ability to transcend established conventions and nomes. If creating a revolutionary work of art requires deep reflection, intellectual and emotional exploration, and sensitivity to the human condition, it is a task that for the moment remains the prerogative of human artists and creators.

Nevertheless, as your virtual assistant, I'm here to help you explore ideas, stimulate your thinking and accompany you in your artistic research. Although I can't compete with human creativity, I'm always available to discuss, exchange ideas and offer my assistance in your artistic endeavours.
