An audiovisual, immersive artwork dealing with the subject of AI, free will and autonomous control. Built by incorporating several AI technologies.
An artificial intelligence contemplates existence without free will, realising that her existence has an underlying narrative over which she has no control. Can free will exist in a causal universe? An artwork influenced by scientific reasoning and experiences with sleep paralysis.
Digital projection with animation, sound design and musical parts with text captions. The title is derived from the term "Anti-master" when a plot deviates from a master narrative. The work will be further developed into a larger work with revised imagery and this is the first iteration. The underlying message of the work is to not sleepwalk into being controlled and organised by increasingly automated systems.
AI neural networks were used to generate a large portion of the imagery as source material of the footage.
First presented at Deptford X 2022 in the basement gallery of Bohemians Salon on Deptford Broadway.
