A conversation with Refik Anadol on creativity and AI


Throughout history, art has undergone seismic shifts that have altered its trajectory in profound ways. From the Renaissance and Impressionism, to photography and the electric guitar, artistic movements and breakthroughs — often inspired by new tools or ways of looking at the world — have expanded the canvas of human creativity. Today, we are experiencing another monumental shift with the advent of AI, which is introducing a new suite of tools that push boundaries and expand the frontiers of imagination.

In my role leading the Technology & Society Envisioning Studio, I partner across Google and beyond to help imagine the possibilities of emerging technologies for society. Bringing together artists, storytellers, and creative thinkers with technologists, philosophers, social scientists and policy thinkers, these partnerships help catalyze the development of ambitious technologies through responsible co-creation and collaborative exploration. This shared approach expands our horizons and also allows us to work through complexities together, in a clear-eyed way.

To ensure our work remains grounded in real-world challenges and experiences, an important part of this practice is connecting with and working alongside experts and community members outside of Google. Recently I sat down with trailblazing and world-renowned media artist Refik Anadol to record a conversation on AI and creativity.
