Abstract

Canton embroidery is one of China's intangible cultural heritages, and its designs reflect the "fusion of East and West" in Lingnan Region of China. In the trend of applying artificial intelligence to the development of traditional crafts, research on the application of artificial intelligence to Canton embroidery is lacking in order to conclude the sustainable development of digitization. This study examines the viability of incorporating AI painting into Canton embroidery by developing a functional model of AI painting design based on the digital database of team Canton embroidery. The model consists of four stages: (1) Developing a project via fieldwork and literature evaluation (2) exercising AI painting application in five aspects, including theme, color, style, composition, and atmosphere (3) Customer Satisfaction Index assessment of model outputs by youth groups and broad embroidery practitioners, and internal consistency. The working model of AI drawing design can provide new ideas for the evolution of embroidery, distinguish it from other forms of modern embroidery, and serve as a case study for the integration of AI with traditional craftsmanship.
