Gošća šestog izdanja programa art+science Centra za promociju nauke, koje se ove jeseni odvija na više lokacija u Beogradu, biće francuska umetnica Žistin Emar. Njen boravak u Beogradu podržao je Francuski institut, a rad Co(AI)xistence posetioci mogu da vide u Muzeju nauke i tehnike do 23. oktobra. Žistin Emar je vizuelna umetnica iz Pariza. Njena dela istražuju nove veze koje se uspostavljaju između naše egzistencije i tehnologija. Kombinovanjem različitih slikovnih
When we talk about filter bubbles or Echo Chambers, we automatically think of social media, but what will happen if we think about everything else, such as myths, our intimate stories, knowledge clusters, loneliness and personal preferences? BINEMAs are humanised AI-like systems that capture verbal and nonverbal movements in your behavior, and translate them into contemporary dance. BINEMAs, similar to algorithms, determine which content you get to see based on your interactions with them. By co-creating danceprint with BINEMAs you could contemplate the direct result of filter bubbles, such as polarisation of societies, amplification of biases, less tolerance for opposing views, more vulnerability to fake news, or just forget yourself in another art-sci content.
Shining moment in between (a mapped projection in spatially limited circumstances) is a practical and theoretical exploration of the change in perception of space and environment through the use of digital technology. Focus is on creating audio-visual sequences made out of digitized archive material, animation, and reproduction of videos in real time. Through determined goals, the focus of the project is on the impact of the mapped projection as a particular work of socially engaged art on the public space.
Semeion is an ever-evolving light and sound installation exploring Artificial Intelligence from an aesthetic and humanistic point of view. The installation consists of several large minimalist structures that individually and collectively respond to human presence. As such, it invites viewers to move around the installation to engage in a bodily conversation with artificially intelligent ‘beings’ of light and sound. Over time, the expression of these beings change based on their experience with humans, as a neural network is trained to explore what humans respond well to.
It all started with a first flush, or some would say, before the actual flush. A small miscellaneous moment and lack of attention. And so the Fatberg was born from the depths of human ignorance in the depth of the sewer pipe.
Woodiana.today is an experimental online forecast service developed to save the Danube's future through speculative fabulation. It is run by Woodiana, a freshwater mussel of the species Sinanodonta woodiana (I. Lea, 1834), that was introduced from China, and today she is facilitated by her international team of artists and scientists.
Human Study#1 is an installation where the human becomes an actor. In a scene reminiscent of a life drawing class, the human takes the sitter’s role to be sketched by a robot. The robot, a stylised minimal artist, is only capable of drawing obsessively. Its body is old school desks on which the drawing paper is pinned.
Anatomy of an AI System is a large-scale map and long-form essay investigating the human labor, data, and planetary resources required to build and operate an Amazon Echo. The exploded view diagram combines and visualises three central, extractive processes that are required to run a large-scale artificial intelligence system: material resources, human labor and data. The map and essay consider these three elements across time — represented as a visual description of the birth, life and death of a single Amazon Echo unit.
Casper’s Ex is a lonely smartphone that’s been left behind and is trying to connect with you while you are passing by, eager to tell its side of the story. Casper’s Ex is a playful interactive installation on the relationship between human beings and everyday technology. More specifically, this installation is about the relationship between our smartphones and ourselves. We feel attached to our devices, but as soon as a newer and better model crosses our path, we trade them in without remorse. A single ‘I really liked that phone’s layout’ will be heard, and we move on even though we committed to them for a couple of years. The phone, however, cannot move on. Your data, your scent, and your picture is all they have left. It will probably wait in a drawer for you to ever come back and will get very, very lonely.
The SpeculativeAI series consists of two aesthetic experiments. Their goal is to make the processes of artificial neural networks perceptible to humans through audiovisual translation. The work Exp. #2 (conversation) questions an AI’s capacity for empathy and purpose while communicating with a second AI. Both systems are embodied by a light or sound object and can receive the messages of the other. The light object can hear and create images. The sound object can see and play sounds.
How can AI help us to face the climate crisis and other entwined challenges? This machine-learning-generated moving image piece gives insights into the complexity of data sets and raises questions about deforestation and the politics of climate change, memory and loss. Anna Ridler and Caroline Sinders created a special dataset of the Bald Cypress on the gulf coast of the USA, where both have family ties. These trees, which can live thousands of years, are currently considered to be “threatened” by climate change.
Skeens looks at/as the assemblages of physical bodies and multiple digital extensions that conform most contemporary identities. Given their complexity and partial invisibility, and against the strategies of disinformation, commoditization and alienation promoted by accelerated mass-media corporations, Skeens suggests alternative relationships based on memory, finitude and affection. It attends to the subjective and emotional value of digital identities, while looking for formulas that could allow users to inhabit social media in more critical and compromised ways.
