Lorem – Distrust Everything
Distrust Everythin is an AV installation in 4 episodes realized through artificial intelligence systems and 3D photogrammetries, which immerses the visitors within an uncanny, synthetic dream realized by a neural network. We live most of our time blissfully unaware of the artificial, intensely designed tangle of infrastructures we inhabit. Accidents, traumas, crises briefly suspend our credulity, and shed light on a reality that exists in order to be fed by its own representations. The immersive work explores the relationship between Fiction and Truth in the age of artificial intelligence through an aesthetic experience that challenges our perception of inner and outer landscapes.
The installation starts every full and half an hour.
