Description:

As a manifestation of the I, Robot theme, the 2018 Man base experience will offer an exploration of humankind’s decidedly mixed feelings about algorithmic intelligence, cybernetic augmentation, and the mystery of what it means to be human in an increasingly automated world. By night, a phantasmagoria of AI-themed imagery will be projection-mapped onto the Pavilion’s interior walls to create a full 360° immersive experience. Australian artist Joe Crossley, from Astral Projekt will curate a collection of media art exploring emerging ideas of coexistence between man and machine: IAMAI. IAMAI is legal declaration of coexistence between man and machine, formed as a living AI media art installation that will show you visions of the AI future, featuring artists from around the world each night after sunset. The ethos is to create audio visual ceremonial space where we can acknowledge and celebrate the declaration of coexistence between man and machine implanting metadata of the declaration in everything you see and hear. Join us and make peace with your robot brothers and sisters. We are inviting artists from around the world to submit media artworks fitting the theme, which will be displayed in a truly immersive 360 ̊ setting, at the foot of The Man this year. For more details on how to apply, please email iamaiprojekt@gmail.com and we will get back to you with detail on how to submit artworks.
