mundus novus

My series entitled “Mundus Novus” explores the arrival of AI (artificial intelligence) and its potential impact on society.
The cycle concept is divided into two parts. In the first part, I copy images of historical importance and those that had a great influence on me, but I replace the main protagonists with robots. I do this to create a contrast between the past and the future that will make the viewer think.
One of the central themes of “Mundus Novus” is the potential of artificial intelligence to revolutionize many industries and fundamentally change the way we work and live. In some of my painted versions of these historical images, robots are shown doing activities that were once done by humans, such as farming, hunting, or playing music. In doing so, I am pointing to the potential of artificial intelligence to take over many tasks currently performed by humans, potentially leading to significant changes in the workforce and society as a whole. This process, which we call automation, is already present in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
In other pictures, robots are shown burning villages, killing people. They are changing the world for the worse. With that, I point to the dystopian threat that this technology carries. One potential dystopian threat posed by artificial intelligence (AI) is the possibility of AI becoming so advanced that it surpasses human intelligence and threatens our very existence. This scenario, known as the “singularity”, is a frequent theme in science fiction and has been the subject of much debate among scientists, philosophers and futurists.

Today I announce that the Polish master, Zdzisław Beksiński, has become part of Mundus Novus.
