Research output: Artistic and non-textual formPerformanceArt in coproductionpeer-review


In a landscape of ruined nature and technological relics, a community of semi-human figures lives a primal and stern existence. An artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm, left to its own devices, tries to learn a meaningless sequence of numbers. It is a garden out of time, or perhaps, it is a garden within the fold of our times. As in a symbiosis, both the algorithm and the figures are stuck in an ever-changing loop. It counts, they worship, they touch, they sense. It counts, they worship, they touch, they hurt, it counts, they sense, they hate. It counts, they worship, they touch, they sense, it counts, they isolate, they hate, they attack.
