We are proud to announce that a long art paper co-written by CMA’s assistant professor Varvara Guljajeva in collaboration with new media artist and researcher Mar Canet has been accepted by the SIGGRAPH 2022 – the world’s largest conference & exhibition on computer graphics and interactive technologies.

The paper explores the creative potential of speech-to-AI-drawing transformation, which is a translation of different semiotic spaces performed by a robot as a method for audience interaction in the art exhibition. CLIPdraw model was further developed to serve the needs of an interactive art installation and support real-time output.
