Two Thousand Seasons / 2020
Ai Data - Videoart
In Two Thousand Seasons, the screen is divided into two: one showing an AI tracking the movement of celestial bodies in a construction of countless moon cycles, the other merges faces from statues throughout two thousand years of human history and AI generated faces.
Each side is given a distinct palette and rhythm. The moon is repeatedly brought together in rapid cycles, while the statue morphs at a drowsy pace. The difference between the two sides makes it difficult for the viewer to consider both at the same time.
With this piece, I used the neural network to undertake the formative spiritual and cultural project that mark our sense of collective archives, ourself and time.
