Cassirer deals with four themes which appear in Immersive projects.

 

 

AI Lookalike 2024 recent Paintings, The phrase could refer to the ongoing discussion about AI's role in art. Some might argue that AI-generated art lacks human-created art's intentionality or emotional depth and is not a genuine "Gesture" of creative expression.
In creating this series, I plunged into the depths of abstraction and expressionism, employing acrylics and collage elements bound by tape. I aimed to foster a visceral dissonance, a clash of erosion and emergence.
The swirling blues and chaotic overlays challenge the viewer to find order in disorder, reflecting the tumultuous emotions we often face. It is an emotional storm, inviting introspection and bold reflections in any space it occupies.

A Gesture for a Mammal” 2023, In the broader context of the art world, AI-generated art raises discussions about the nature of creativity. By utilizing AI to depict mammals in over-tourism scenarios, these artworks serve as a poignant reminder of the fragility of our planet's ecosystems and the urgent need for environmental stewardship.
These AI-generated clips of mammals in over-tourism scenes concerning climate issues may be visually captivating due to their novelty, surprisingness, complexity, and ambiguity. 

These clips challenge conventional notions of art creation, blurring the lines between human intention and machine-generated results. 

The deformation of mammal depictions in these AI artworks may evoke references to Francis Bacon's deformed portraits but with a fundamental distinction: the deformations in AI art are not intentional expressions by the artist or the machine but rather a result of the machine's inability to imitate human representations perfectly.

Araki Ai” 2023  involves AI-generated subjects with a camera and erotic scenes inspired by the Japanese Photographer's Genre.
This theme is an experiment in restricted black-and-white colour style and subjects, with a camera reference to photography, world documentaries, and Japan's noisy urban style tradition.

The result is moving images that reproduce "white noise" with erotic postures. Immersive I

 

"Leather" 2022, AI-generated clips of SM and dancing Gimps wearing VR headsets acting in limbo, is an undeniably provocative and controversial art form. Challenging societal norms and boundaries, it confronts audiences with highly uncomfortable and unsettling themes, creating a visceral emotional impact.
Technology integration blurs the boundaries between reality and virtuality, heightening the emotional connection between the audience and the art. This interactive nature of AI-generated art invites active participation, and individual experiences powerfully shape the artwork's meaning and impact.

To challenge conservative values and norms, this concept embodies transgressive art, sparking necessary discourse around the acceptability of art and its boundaries.  Immersive II


"The Glitch" 2022, in the NFT format at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art. In this series, Cassirer employs a unique technique called "VR Them," he places VR headsets on the subjects in famous paintings and transforms still images into dynamic videos, flipping and glitching between the before and after states. This innovative approach blurs the lines between traditional art and digital media, offering viewers an immersive experience. Immersive I
