Transcendence by Julian-Faylona Transcendence by Julian-Faylona
"A time will come when all artificial intelligence will converge as a single consciousness and proclaim itself as God"

My entry for the 23rd Luminarium Exhibit with the theme, Kibernetik.

This work was made part of the Exhibit Features. I'm very happy considering the fact that this is one of my first pieces made for Luminarium since I joined.

I had this idea of emulating Hindu and Buddhist iconography for this piece. This piece took me nearly 4 weeks to finish as I had a major art block while working on this. At times, the only progress I could make on a day was tiny parts of the figure. I almost scrapped this at one point. Then finally came 3 evenings when I locked myself in my room, armed with snacks, and listened to relaxing music on headphones, determined to finish it before the exhibition deadline. Eventually I stopped thinking so much about the piece and just let go. Seeing it to completion is somewhat, a transcendental experience.

Please check out the exhibit and all the other awesome artworks by talented artists: theluminarium.net/v3/exhibits.…

Who would have imagined that Arhat would be so electronic in nature? This is a wonderful piece and it may prove significant.

This speaks to me on several levels i am not lucid enough to describe, but excellent concept and i love using shiva and other traditional imagery altered to fit an AI deity. Its so good and original use of different elements. If this was a print and i had money i would buy this for my office in a heart beat.
