In addition to the poems I publish, I am happy to create images using artificial intelligence in order to bring poetry closer to people, which is unjustifiably neglected nowadays as an art form.
Describe yourself... " I am a PhD computer scientist from Croatia (Čakovec, HR). I have been working as a computer scientist since 1994 and I am engaged in scientific work in the field of e-learning using new information and communication technologies and the use of multimedia in teaching. I am the author of over thirty scientific and professional articles, writer of prose texts and poems. Besides the poems I publish, I like to create artistic images with artificial intelligence to bring people closer to poetry, which is nowadays unjustly neglected as an art form."
What gets your creative juices flowing? / How does inspiration come to you? "I look for inspiration in personal impressions that come from everyday life and literature (poetry). AI ART POETRY is just a logical continuation. Such a combination allows me to detach myself from the physical world and move away from the strictly temporal-linear dimension."
Why do you create art? "My personal artistic practice is primarily focused on poetry. After completing the poem (Paul Valery
says that the poem is never finished, only abandoned), I "paint" my own poems into works of art using various methodological processes and an interdisciplinary approach using AI technology. This requires an individual and broad range of knowledge and creativity to be both a poet and an artistic painter. "
What has been the highlight of your career so far? "So far, I have published 9 books of poetry in Croatian and a novel translated into 8 world languages
(https://www.omniscriptum.com/author-biography/krunoslav-bedi/). I pave my own way with "AI ART" and digital artistic photography, which I do in my free time (I also play soccer and like to ride motorcycles). The pièce de résistance is, of course, the PhD in Information and Communication Sciences and dozens of published scientific and professional
What does your dream studio look like? "A studio with images clothed in words."
Where would you like your art to take you? "The unknown is our own world. I consider self-discovery to be the pinnacle of artistic expression. Consciousness, thoughts and expressionist fiction are the basis of structured art. So my answer lies in the dreams, because only dreams are reality."
How does your artwork relate to current issues in the world? "I avoid the symbolism of reshaping the world because it requires planning. The goal of art and artistic work is to show the world unconscious beauty and the joy it evokes." Does art always have to have a deeper meaning? "No. Art should not be mystical. Beauty as a catalyst and different forms and ICT (multimedia) are enough to provoke different senses with the aim of creating meaning (information). With such an approach, I allow the viewer (audience) to complete my own artwork."
Who/what inspires you? Why? "The most important ingredient to experimentation is curiosity. What follows is an exploration of the
interdisciplinary nature of poetics and the connections it creates between other (different) artistic
expressions and arrangements."
What brings you joy? "Poetry and art should be made accessible to everyone. Each of us has a narrative and at least a minimal esthetic sense of appealing composition. There is an artist in each of us. I enjoy discovering the artist of observation."
How would you like to be remembered? "As an AI ART POETRY artist."
What would you say to your younger self? "Forgive and forget."
