Automated creation, marketing, and sale of artwork

The Autonomous Artist (TAA) programmatically generates artwork, shares and promotes it on Instagram, gains Instagram followers (by driving traffic to its work without the use of hashtags), and sells its work, all without human intervention.

TAA's work is often perceived to be indistinguishable of origin (whether it was created by a computer or human), passing a creative Turing Test.

I created TAA to catalyze discourse regarding whether creativity is a process which is exclusive to humans and whether machines can transition to possessing agency, having been catalyzed to do so by their creators.
