Based on the AI ​​performance SH4D0W, the AI artwork !brute_force and the virtual AI piece collectiveMemories CLICK Garden explores the existential and ethical dilemmas that arise when artificial intelligence tries to simulate humanity and human emotions by harvesting not only our data but our memories.

CLICK Garden

The predominant vegetation in the CLICK Garden are the existential and ethical dilemmas that arise when humans are confronted with artificial intelligence. Works produced by The Culture Yard, MindFuture Foundation, Kapelica Gallery, Quo Artis and memoryMechanics include everything from immersive experiences in the 4D Box hologram stage with a live performer and AI interacting with audiences to online artist talks and activities, e.g., a Covid-19 AI battle between Trump and WHO, where two politically biased AIs will challenge each other and the audience about the „right“ interpretation of „reality“.

The AI ​​stage-performance SH4D0W is an immersive 3D production, premiering January 2021. Key elements from the AI performance will be presented in an interactive online experience. Inspired by H.C. Andersen’s fairytale The Shadow it thematizes the shadow of man’s struggle to find himself in a digital world by focusing upon the digital seduction enabled by human-like AI. It is a journey into digital consciousness, where the possibility of personal self-understanding fights against the computer-driven logic of data capitalism. The artwork !brute_force by artist Maja Smrekar, is based on artistic research on a platform for humans, dogs, and AI. Finally, collectiveMemories is a virtual version of the physical piece memoryMechanics, also premiering in January 2021.
