The paper aim at investigating the artistic practices linked to the latest developments in artificial intelligence. From one hand, the paper shows how the role of artists within technological development processes is neither secondary nor marginal, but that instead represents an engine for technological innovation. On the other hand, the idea of artificial intelligence is connected to those practices which, rather than uncritically taking up these themes, try to investigate the meanings, the new relationships and the reflections opened by the advent of these areas. After an introduction section, the concept of videoart will be reread from the point of view of the latest development in AI showing the polymorph nature of the concept. The analysis of the artistic practice will be developed not only from the point of view of technics and languages, but also showing how a new trend of artists, using AI technologies, are leading a new ecological vision, a postanthropocentric vision of the human being.
