Ivona Tau (Tautkute-Rustecka) is an AI artist and researcher from Lithuania who works with artificial intelligence as a medium in visual arts. A core element of Ivona’s work lies in the intersection of arts and photography with the new technologies and machine learning. Her goal is to find and evoke emotions in the artificially intelligent tools, this way making them more human. By creating art and collaborating with the machine, she also explores her inner emotional states.
Ivona holds a Master's degree in Mathematics at Warsaw University. Currently, she pursues a Ph.D. in Computer Science at the Polish-Japanese Academy of Information Technology.
She has been awarded the best award in the Digital Ars 2020 contest dedicated to art creation with AI for her two projects: “These humans did not feel” and “Unseen Warsaw”. Ivona is active on the NFT art scene and is currently one of the top-50 creators on the environmentally friendly Hic Et Nunc platform as well as one of the trending artists on Foundation. Her NFT work has been sold in the world's most prestigious Sotheby's auction house in New York.
