Aya is a multi-faceted designer. She is an artificial intelligence artist, a data scientist and the founder of CreativeAya.ai, a co-creative media and art studio based in Los Angeles. Her work was presented in London with Artsy and during the Miami Art Basel 2021. She was awarded a BlackAir Fellowship from Stanford University to develop a co-creative AI system that allows her to imagine and make new worlds based on authentic stories.
Aya explores the intersection of media, art and technology. Her visual narratives explore the following questions: How can we co-create with AI to transcend trauma-centred stories of Black communities into visual narratives that evoke a sense of inspiration, empowerment and healing? How can we use augmented reality technologies to reveal artefacts and cultures that have been or are being erased? Her work uses artificial intelligence to create immersive and transformative experiences with memorable authentic stories.
