Imagine the Faroe Islands

The Faroe Islands are a cluster of 18 islands located in the middle of the vast North Atlantic Ocean. Due to the islands’ extremely remote location, most of the greatest artists throughout the ages, understandably never enjoyed the opportunity to visit the Faroes for themselves. That means, of course, that we will never know how the Faroe Islands’ breathtaking beauty and dramatic landscapes could have inspired artists such as Van Gogh and Monet.

However, ARTificial intelligence can.

A new exhibit explores the Faroe Islands through the eyes of the world’s greatest artists. In the Faroe Islands, the National Gallery has opened a world-first exhibition: the first time ever that a National Gallery has featured on its walls images created solely by artificial intelligence.

The technology at the heart of the exhibition, in the form of Midjourney’s brand-new AI platform, was asked a simple question:

“What if the greatest artists ever living had painted the Faroe Islands…?”
