Meditative Machine (Space)
Recent developments in artificial intelligence have confronted us with new kinds of intelligence as unexpected as they are indecipherable. Go champions beat, real-time language translation and imprinting a master painter’s style onto a photograph or even a video are but a few examples of what computers have been able to achieve in the past few years. Furthermore, this tasks are performed in ways that no human could ever do, showing unforeseen levels of intelligence and creativity. This project is an attempt to remove the machine from its tasks and present it as an intelligent being itself by performing possibly the most human of tasks: meditation. It meditates upon color and displays the numerical and visual representations creating a natural bond between human and machine beyond the functional.
