This article investigates two technology-and science-based methods and their potentiality and use in contemporary art, specifically in image-making traditions. Firstly, the article will briefly present digital image creation processes involving Artificial Intelligence(AI) and GANs, and secondly it will introduce a possibility for science-based imagemodification usinga lab-basedCRISPR-Cas9 system. Both methods have become available for artistic use with an increase in DIY and open science developments.These scientific methods impact the produced resultaesthetically, according to the context and through associations. The question this paper focuses on iswhat kind of images are created with these methods? How is the meaning conveyed with these types of images? And what is the artistic point of making images with such technology-based processes?
