Artificial Cinema

Curated by Mohammad Salemy

 

tranzitdisplay, Prague, Czech Republic

March 19–May 29, 2016

 

 

The exhibition is a large collaborative effort that explores the history of science fiction cinema and its embedded potentials for arriving at a synthesized vision for the future of art. The exhibition traces a trajectory away from Anthropocinema—human centered cinema—towards more open and complex cinematic collaborations between humans and machines. By means of multiple curatorially conceptualized software programs, written and structured in collaboration with Tony Yanick who acts as the project’s algorithm architect, a logical engine automatically composes two single-channel videos using the participants’ research data.
