Artificial Intelligence World Premiere:
Mercury XX from Germany - To design the original look of the film an AI model was trained on thousands of space fashion images and was tasked with developing speculative sketches of costumes and the fictional spaceship.
Artificial Intelligence and Metaverse World Premiere:
Ruined World an Elegy in Four Parts from Hong Kong - The visuals are a series of AI-generated artworks created by Polyptech (Poposki's creative alter ego in the Metaverse) through text-to-image synthesis utilizing a neural network. The neural network has been trained by Polyptech through thousands of iterations to generate visuals based on a string of keywords associated to climate change, such as the Anthropocene, ecology, nature, etc.
The text is an AI-generated poem co-written with Poposki, based on the text of Henry David Thoreau's reflection upon simple living in/with nature, "Walden". The AI uses a generative text model developed by Open AI, leveraging machine learning and deep learning to achieve the generation of natural language. The resulting AI poem is then read by an AI text-to-speech voice generator. The music in the film is a generative sound piece created by an AI music algorithm trained on Johann Sebastian Bach's Chorale BWV639 (Choral Prelude in F Minor).
Augmented Reality World Premieres:
Isaac Lidar from USA - Isaac, is part of a body of work that explores portraiture through the use of light detection and ranging.
The LiDAR sensor is the primary way in which machines and modern robots see the world. The work gives insight into the way in which we are teaching our creations to see us and the augmented reality component allows the viewer to interact with the portrait revealing layers of information. There is an NFT of this as well.
Mother of Sorrow Sacred Art Experience from USA - A first of its kind. A site-specific test project aimed to reunite and invite people back into sacred spaces after the pandemic.
