He is the founder of the Center for Urban Intervention Research, an interdisciplinary hub for art, community engagement, and activism.In one artwork, If the lion could speak…, Momeni attempted to establish a dialogue with bees using shared sounds and images.
You still need artists to come up with ideas that matter and come up with strange, provocative, innovative ways of sharing these ideas with other people. And AI doesn’t do that. AI is really for... expanding your research skills beyond what is humanly possible.Ali Momeni
