As a visual artist, software engineer, and maker (she calls herself an engineering artist), Helena Sarin has always worked with cutting-edge technologies for tech companies. At the same time, she has done commission work in watercolor and pastel, as well as in applied arts like fashion, food and drink styling, and photography. But art and software ran as parallel tracks in her life, all her art being analog, until she discovered GANs (Generative Adversarial Networks). Since then, generative models have become her primary medium, and creating at the intersection of technology and art has elevated her artistic voice.
She is a frequent speaker at ML/AI conferences, having delivered invited talks in the last two years at MIT, the Eyeo Festival, the Library of Congress, Capitol One, Adobe Research, CMU, and TEDx Konstanz.
Her work was exhibited at AI art exhibitions in Zurich, Dubai, Oxford, Shanghai, Miami, Zaragoza, and Lutz and was featured in a number of publications, including twice in the magazine "Art In America," as well as upcoming books on NFT art by Rizzoli and Taschen.
She published an artist book "The Book of GANesis" that was immediately sold out; "GANcommedia Erudita" and "Leaves of Manifold" have been exhibited in the Nvidia AI Art Gallery; and just recently "The Book of #veGAN".
