Machine Meditation Studies #2
- Sat 2619:30-21:00
Machine Mediation #2, forms part of a series of studies exploring what a ‘meditative’ audio visual experience might look like for future semi-artificial life. In Machine Meditation #2, the ‘alpha’ dream state meets the electric fission of human-generated ECG scans, connecting and disconnecting. The rhythmic ripple of the LCD screen is painterly and peaceful, restorative yet melancholy. Fragments of data disassemble and then collage into machine-mind landscapes – micro-territories unknown and unknowable. Machine Meditation is part of Sympathetic Synthetics a speculative research inquiry looking into silicon futures, conscious codes and artificial life forms.
