Entangled Realities
Sebastian Pirch (AT), Norbert Unfug (AT), Christiane Hütter (AT), Jörg Menche (DE)

The human species is surrounded by networks. Interrelations shape our physical and digital environment, from airports and cityscapes to social or genetic interactions. An invisible body of connections is interwoven within our physical reality. The digital and physical shall form a symbiotic realm, visualized in a virtual world to be experienced by a human spectator. Through transitioning in between different environments, from urban networks to the human body, the Entangled Realities communicate the diversity of complex systems shaping our human habitat.

Emergent Topographies of Vienna
Firas Safieddine (LB/ AT/ ES), Eveline Wandl-Vogt (AT)

Emergent topographies is a video installation, created by using artificial intelligence in the form of generative adversarial networks for creative production. Given the complexity of intelligence, be it synthetic or biological, the artwork operates in the friction space between citizen data science, urban dynamics, artificial intelligence and neuroscience; exploring the interaction through generating mutant topographies of brain data and citizen urban data using creative algorithms.

Journey Chat: „The Zizi Show” with Jake Elwes and Danielle Brathwaite-Shirley

Treten Sie ein in die Welt von The Zizi Show (2020), einem Deepfake-Drag-Kabarett, einer virtuellen Online-Bühne, auf der eine bahnbrechende neue Show mit einem gewissen Etwas stattfindet. Hier werden Acts gezeigt, die mit Hilfe der Deepfake-Technologie konstruiert wurden und durch das Beobachten einer Gruppe menschlicher Darsteller:innen lernen, wie man Drag macht.

Journey Chat: „How to Strand Astronauts on the Moon?” with Halsey Burgund and Francesca Panetta

Im Anschluss an die Journey "How to strand Astronouts on the Moon?" werden Halsey Burgund und Francesca Panetta ihre Arbeit, Perspektiven und Visionen mit den Teilnehmer:innen des Chats vertiefen. Eine der zentralen Fragen ihrer Journey ist, wie digitale Erzählungen, die mit Hilfe von KI-Modellen erstellte Inhalte in ihre Geschichten einbeziehen, mit unserer Wahrnehmung dessen, was real und was gefälscht ist, spielen können und so die Potenziale und Fallstricke der Technologie aufzeigen.
