Scaffolded Souls: An AI Exploration in Sculpture

The language of construction materials has always resonated with me, perhaps a familial echo from a lineage of architects and artists. There’s a raw, inherent dialogue in the interplay between the rigidity of scaffolding and the fluidity of the human form. It’s this dialogue that I sought to explore through AI, blending the feminine silhouette with the bones of buildings — scaffolding.

In this digital space, AI became a tool of translation, a means to reimagine the structural with the sensual. It allowed me to push boundaries and morph these cold, hard materials into something that exudes warmth and movement.

The results were unexpected, a series of forms that captured a unique essence of the subjects they represent. They are, in essence, scaffolded souls — a framework upon which layers of human emotion and sensuality might later be added.

These AI-generated studies have opened a window to what could be, offering a glimpse into a fusion of worlds. While they stand as intriguing forms on their own, I see them as the foundation for further artistic exploration. With a touch more refinement, a hint more emotion, they could evolve into sculptures that not only occupy space but also speak to the viewer, telling stories of strength, design, and the complexity of the human spirit. They are fun, they are experimental, they are the beginning of a conversation between my heritage and my artistry, mediated by the digital hand of AI.
