- Trent Anthony Francis | Visual | FAUX PHOTOGRAPHIC
FAUX PHOTOGRAPHIC An exploration of synthetic photographic mediums, produced with Photoshop, Artisan Pro X, Remini and MidJourney. AI is having a significant impact on the artistic landscape, both in terms of the way art is created and the way it is perceived. The use of machine learning algorithms to generate images has opened up new possibilities for artists and photographers to explore. With AI, artists can experiment with new forms, techniques, and aesthetics, leading to unique and unconventional images that challenge traditional modes of representation. Additionally, AI photography is democratizing the art world by making it more accessible and inclusive, enabling individuals without formal training or access to expensive equipment to create compelling images. At the same time, it is challenging the definition of art by blurring the line between what is created by humans and what is created by machines. While some may question whether AI-generated art can truly be considered "art," the rise of AI suggests that our understanding of art is evolving in response to new technologies and forms of creativity. AI is transforming the way we think about and create art, expanding the horizons of artistic expression and pushing the boundaries of what is possible.

- Trent Anthony Francis | Visual | KEYSTONE
KEYSTONE | COMPANION ART BOOK A collaboration between science fiction writer, Dominic Hull and featuring the art of Trent Anthony Francis. Keystone takes place in Australia, after an extinction level event wiped the world's biosphere clean. Oceans have stagnated, forests burn and cities are all but destroyed. Centuries after, a small group of Humans have migrated into a vast walled city known as 'Citadel', living off scavenged technology and the recycled dead. Beyond the walls, feral populations of humans lurk beneath the ruins of distant cities and an ancient battle between two forces threatens to crush what traces are left of Humanity. Within the walls of the Citadel, two groups of soldiers clash as diplomacy begins to fail. The Sentinels that guard the walls against threats from outside and in; and the Rangers , who use their expertise to salvage resources and expand the Citadels influence.

It wiped the biosphere clean off the surface of the planet. I f it even glances at the Citadel, all that would be left is a crater a hundred kilometres wide, and you want to kill it? “At our height, Humanity could do nothing against it. I’ve seen the records. We shot it, bombed it, nuked it, dropped thousand tonne pillars of osmium from orbit straight down on to it, and it. Did. Nothing. I t killed countless billions in a matter of days. Melted cities into piles of slag. Crumbled mountain ranges that spanned countries and turned continents into barren wastelands of fire and ash. We aren’t even ants to it. And you think you can kill it? “It is fire and it is death. The power of a star bound to flesh. And it was the First.”.. - Concerning the Pyroclast, KEYSTONE
- Trent Anthony Francis | Vacant Forms | Interpretation
VACANT FORMS INTERPRETATION “Invention, it must be humbly admitted, does not consist in creating out of void, but out of chaos; the materials must, in the first place, be afforded: it can give form to dark, shapeless substances, but cannot bring into being the substance itself.” ― Mary Shelley, Frankenstein ASSIMILATE A way in which an artist can be influenced by other creatives is through the process of assimilation, where an artist absorbs and integrates elements of other artists' work into their own artistic style or approach. This can involve incorporating elements of other artists' work into one's own work in a more subtle or indirect way, rather than imitating specific elements. Assimilation can allow an artist to expand their own artistic horizons and incorporate new ideas and perspectives into their work, and can also serve as a way of exploring and challenging the boundaries of their own artistic identity. THE DEGREE OF CONNECTIVITY Creativity is a complex and multifaceted process that involves the generation of new and original ideas or solutions to problems. While scientists have not yet reached a full understanding of how our creativity works, there are several factors that are thought to play a role in the process. One key factor is the role of the brain in creativity. The brain is responsible for processing and integrating information, and it is thought that certain brain areas and processes are particularly important for creativity. For example, the prefrontal cortex and the medial temporal lobe are both thought to be important for creative thinking. In addition, research has suggested that creativity may be related to the degree of connectivity between different brain areas, as well as to the flexibility and plasticity of the brain. From a philosophical perspective, creativity is often seen as an integral part of human nature and as a key aspect of what makes us unique as individuals. It is often associated with concepts such as imagination, self-expression, and the ability to think outside the box. In philosophy, creativity is often linked to the concept of free will, which is the belief that individuals have the ability to make choices and act independently. Some philosophers argue that creativity is a manifestation of free will, as it allows individuals to generate new ideas and solutions that are not bound by predetermined rules or expectations.
- Trent Anthony Francis | Artist Statement
ARTIST STATEMENT The scope of artistic creation is so vast and untapped, it is almost mind boggling to consider. Humans have been making things for the longest time conceivable which have continued to play a part in how we see the world today. History and the future quite often feel intertwined when it comes to creativity, we borrow from the old to make something new, but we also use powerful technological advancements to go back into the past and relearn old techniques with a new set of eyes. I have always been a strong advocate for building and sharing upon existing ideas, as we artists, scientists, educators and creative thinkers often draw inspiration from the work of our predecessors or contemporary peers. This can take many forms, such as incorporating elements of another artist's style or techniques into one's own work, using existing themes or subjects as a starting point for a new piece of art or music, or adapting something into a brand new medium entirely, like an endless innovative remix that continues to expand and find new life. Creative Commons has provided a fantastic legal tool for amateur and professional creatives alike, to get more involved with building upon established work, using it in bold new ways or transforming it into something completely new, this is such a truly exciting concept as it means we can always find new methods to tell our stories in any kind of medium, divulge our imaginations and expand upon never ending discoveries. Art is and always has been, ubiquitous. Trent Anthony Francis
