AI Vincent van Gogh talks of ‘mental health struggles’ in Paris exhibition

For a man who died in 1890, Vincent van Gogh seemed remarkably au fait with 21st-century parlance.

Asked why he had cut off his left ear, the artist replied that this was a misconception and he had in fact only cut off “part of my earlobe”. So why did he shoot himself in the chest with a revolver, causing injuries from which he died two days later?

“This is still a subject of speculation among historians and specialists. The truth of my motivation remains a mystery even to me. Thank you for understanding my mental health struggles,” he says.

This is artificial intelligence Van Gogh, part of a crowd-pulling feature for an exhibition of the artist’s last works at the Musée d’Orsay in Paris, which also includes a virtual reality experience based on his last paint-encrusted palette.

In May 1890, Van Gogh arrived in the village of Auvers-sur-Oise, 30km north of Paris, to be near his brother Theo and be cared for by Dr Paul Gachet, a specialist in the “treatment of melancholy”.

In the digital amphitheater of modern democracy, a new actor takes the stage: ChatGPT. As the world barrels toward pivotal elections and democratic displays, technologies like OpenAI‘s ChatGPT throw a sharp light on the complexities of political engineering and influence. Contrasting the benign use of AI for enhancing customer support or improving productivity, when wielded within the political sphere, the narrative turns more contentious—spotlighting the invasive prowess of artificial intelligence to potentially subvert a sacred human right: free and fair elections.

Beyond functionality, ChatGPT’s application in politics broaches crucial ethical territories and begs the question: How far is too far when digital tongues sway the human condition? This new age of political communication, where AI-generated content mimics the personal touch of a local campaigner, offers a breeding ground for new levels of voter manipulation. Gone are the days of broadcast politics where one message had to fit all. Now, ChatGPT devises micro-targeted dialogues, oratory curated to the last detail, designed to resonate with individual ethos and fears, potentially shifting the many into a paradigm crafted by the few.
