The large-format projection on the facade of the Brno House of Arts took place on December 20th, 2021, on the second anniversary of Woody Vasulka's passing. The projected audiovisual remix was created from fragments of videos by Steina and Woody Vasulka, which were interwoven with visualizations of the pseudo-cognitive processes of artificial neural networks.

The video loop presents the outputs of the pseudo-cognitive processes that take place in the lower layers of the artificial neural network model during the analyses of the content of the Vasulkas’ video archive. These visualizations were created as a by-product of the process of production of the neural network classification model.
Vasulka Live Archive: The Immersive Virtual Reality

This is an Android app that has been programmed in the Unity game engine. It uses stored information from the outputs of neural network models developed in the Vasulka Live Archive project and places previews of Vasulkas’ videos in a virtual 3D space. Virtual reality visitors can move around the space, trigger, and rearrange the videos.

The Vasulka Live Archive website is an intelligent interface to the content of the Steina and Woody Vasulka archive. It consists of two interfaces called Machine Vision and Machine Learning. While playing a selected work, users can see a graphical representation of the occurrence of the audio and video objects identified by the artificial neural networks on the timeline with an accuracy of one second.
