GenAI: A First Step

As part of my residency with Vital Capacities, I’m exploring the relationship between GenAI and artists, focusing on how AI can enhance our creative processes. Today, I’m excited to share my first use case: using ChatGPT to extract and describe image content for accessibility purposes. Here’s a photograph I captured during my urban exploration.


To ensure that my work is accessible to all, I used ChatGPT to generate a detailed description of the image. The AI accurately identified the silhouette of a person standing on a high vantage point, overlooking a brightly lit cityscape at night, with an overcast sky adding to the dramatic atmosphere.

This initial use of GenAI demonstrates how artists can utilize AI tools to create accessible content, ensuring that our work can be experienced by a broader audience, including those with visual impairments. By integrating AI into our practice, we can enhance the inclusivity and reach of our art.

Stay tuned as I continue to explore and share more ways in which AI can support and transform our artistic endeavors. This is just the beginning of an exciting journey with Vital Capacities.

Introduction to James’s Studio

The image depicts a silhouette of a person standing on a high vantage point overlooking a city at night. The person appears to be wearing a headlamp or some device with a red light on their back. The cityscape below is illuminated with streetlights and lights from numerous tall buildings. The sky is overcast with clouds, adding to the dramatic atmosphere of the scene. In the foreground, there is a large metal structure, possibly part of a communications tower or similar equipment.

Greetings, I'm James Kong King-sin, a highly skilled Interactive Media Engineer and Bachelor of Science graduate from the School of Creative Media at City University of Hong Kong. I'm fascinated by the convergence of art, science, and technology, and have pursued diverse projects that have connected me with a wide range of researchers and creatives.
My practice is often project-based, where I'm employed to communicate specific ideas and issues through interactive installations and multimedia experiences. This residency presents an exciting opportunity to explore tangential concepts from my previous work that piqued my interest. I plan to create a series of new interactive narratives, incorporating emerging technologies like Generative AI to enhance storytelling and audience engagement.
With a passion for human-computer interaction and multimedia, I've dedicated my career to bridging the realm of theater and computational media. Possessing a unique blend of strategic thinking, analytical prowess, and leadership skills, I excel at developing and executing innovative strategies to drive transformative initiatives. My versatile skillset includes expertise in programming, Generative AI, and creating immersive Mixed Reality experiences.
Through my work, I continuously push the boundaries of technology and artistic expression, striving to craft meaningful and impactful experiences that captivate audiences. I welcome you to explore the work displayed in my studio and feel free to share your thoughts and questions.
