Ai-Da’s solo exhibition, Unsecured Futures, opens at Oxford University from June 12.

The artwork will include drawing, painting, and even sculpture.

Aidan Meller, Ai-Da’s brainchild and gallery owner, said: “Pioneering a new AI art movement, we are excited to present Ai-Da, the first professional humanoid artist, who creates her own art, as well as being a performance artist.

“As an AI robot, her artwork uses AI processes and algorithms.

“The work engages us to think about AI and technological uses and abuses in the world today.”

Engineers in Leeds developed the robotic hand, which calculates a virtual path based on what it “sees” in front of it and then interpreting co-ordinates to create the piece of art.

“We are looking forward to the conversation Ai-Da sparks in audiences,” said Lucy Seal, researcher and curator for the project.

“A measure of her artistic potential and success will be the discussion she inspires.

“Engaging people so we feel empowered to re-imagine our attitudes to organic life and our futures is a major aim of the project.”
