A new exhibition at The Dalí Museum is using interactive artificial intelligence to create a new kind of experience at its gallery, in St. Petersburg.
The Shape of Dreams, on view from November 25, 2022, until April 30, 2023, explores 500 years of paintings, from the 16th to 20th centuries, and examines dreams through different lenses — psychological, religious and metaphysical, according to a statement.
The Dream Tapestry exhibit is an innovative AI area that offers visitors the opportunity to see their own dreams transformed into works of art.
The experience was developed by The Dalí, in collaboration with Goodby Silverstein & Partners, with creative concepting by Minds Over Matter, and OpenAI — the creator of the text-to-image AI system DALL·E.
The presenting sponsor of The Shape of Dreams is Therapedic | Tommy Bahama Mattresses with support from Antinori & Weinman Families, Aveda Florida, BNO Creative Labs and Sandy Taraszki & David Zuern, airport partner St. Pete-Clearwater International Airport and the hotel partner TradeWinds Island Resorts.
A presentation of how the experience was created, how the technology works and a gallery of each dream created, in real-time, at The Dalí are available at TheDali.org/dreaming.
