Artificial Intelligence

New developments in the field of artificial intelligence (AI) have more and more influence on our everyday life. In particular, the advanced machine learning technologies raise many new questions about the effects of AI and provide diverse tools for artistic experiments.

Quadrature: C.R.E.D.O. Fantasie#3 (2020)

Quadrature understands technology as means to read and write realities. The artist duo pursues a transdisciplinary approach, using various media for time-based performances and installations. Their latest project “C.R.E.D.O. Fantasie#3”, an audiovisual performance for radio-astronomical data, artificial intelligence and self-playing piano, is part of a series using artificial intelligence trained on human communication to search for patterns and rhythms in data from outer space.

Electromagnetic radio waves from the universe serve as input data for several neural networks, which have been trained on human communications and ideas of extraterrestrial life. Now the networks are desperately trying to discover hidden messages of distant civilizations in the murmur of space. As the artificial intelligences reach deeper and deeper into the alien data mysterious noises evolve, composing a non-worldy triad of human, extraterrestrial and artificial sounds.

»Supraorganism« is a reactive installation composed of robotic glass sculptures, animated by a machine learning system and elaborated from datas collected in a community of bees. Those organisms have always been a source of inspiration for thinkers. Today, the deduction techniques of machines allow us to interpret a large amount of data to observe the world differently.

A network of artificial neurons has been trained during the residence with the complicity of Martial Geoffre Rouland, on signals captured by the artist. The system generates predictions of possible futures. Twenty robotic glass sculptures come to life through lights and motors. The unpredictable nature of this artificial intelligence leads us to live a singular experience. This new being reacts in symbiosis while colliding in a floating constellation.

From this ensemble emanates a form of collective intelligence, a »Supraorganism« comes to life, generating new images from the shadows and reflections projected in the space.
