Art & AI projects

In the past years I have developed many concepts for art projects involving the use of robotics and/or Artificial Intelligence (AI). Many of them have been further developed while I had the honor and pleasure of participating in an AI workshop for artists organized by the University of Luxembourg in from October to December 2020.
Feel free to click either on the titles in the list below leading you directly to the detailed descriptions of the projects or scroll down to get some first impressions.

Windows42 – a site specific installation

Windows42 is a site-specific installation in the Computational Creativity Hub (CCH) of the University of Luxembourg. It is part of the for Singularity42 exhibition during Esch2022.
Using the architectural design of the CCH it enable different levels of contact between the vistitors who are separated and connected at the same by a series of window frames.

DEUS-X-MACHINA

In most epochs of human history the idea of an omnipotent, all-knowing entity was reserved to the gods. This has produced a multitude of different belief systems and religions.
Today the possibilities of AI systems are close to reaching a similiar level of omniscience and have induced many dystopian and elysian visions. DEUS-X-MACHINA takes a both philosophical and entertaining approach by creating ethical chatbots with different religious and philosophical backgrounds. who will enter into dialogues upon different topics.

A Midsummer Nights Drone Dream – MNDD

Drones have been used in many different ways in the arts. They provide “drone fireworks” across the skies and are also seen on stage interacting with dancers and /or actors, where the movements will be preset and choreographed. “A Midsummer Nights Drone Dream” explores the control of two drone swarms hovering around 2 human bodies and thereby expanding the volume of the dancers in space.
The drones symbolize the fairy servants to Oberon and Titania, the king and queen of the spiritual world evoked in Shakespeares “Midsummernights Dream”.

For further details please refer to the MNDD subpage. MNDD is a part of the larger research project CARDS.

Cassandras Digital Corridor 

”Cassandras Digital Corridor” is a “walk in”-sculpture pointing towards possible dystopian or elysian aspects of our radically digitized society. Expanding the idea of the visionary powers of Cassandra, the famous Trojan priestess of Apollo in Greek mythology the visitors interact with different aspects of visualization.
These include the question of individual self perception, the representation of knowledge in our digital age, our choice of ictures and finally the creation of a possible future space.
Because Cassandra was cursed to utter true prophecies, but never to be believed, the visitors can choose if they want to share their explorations and created images with other visitors in the exhibition and the world or merely enjoy them in their own privacy.

Eurostat Data Paradise – making data sensual

Unfortunately many people are scared by data and statistics. One of the main reasons is, that they have had negative experiences in their school or as grown-ups.
Eurostat provides an amazing wealth of European and non-European data, which we want to include in an exploratory art project, where people will playfully dive into the many options of how statistics can be made visible.
Following the footsteps of fascinating data-presenters – e.g. the late Hans Rosling – the Digital Paradise Eurostat will be a wonderful and inspiring exploration of digital data.
