Through video installations, three-dimensional animations, mirror tiles, multimedia interactive installations, electronic games and other forms, AI: Love and Artificial Intelligence focuses on “social intelligence” and discusses the emotional decisions under the influence of algorithms, love affairs in the online environment, and the physical intimacies in long-distance relationships and also resonates the sympathies woven by big data.
AI is a pun. It is the pronunciation of “love” in Chinese pinyin, and at the same time, stands for “Artificial Intelligence” in English. Curated by writer and curator Jenny Chen Jiaying some the artists participating are Aaajiao, Adam Harvey, Benjamin Berman & Miguel Perez, CHEN Zhou, HE Rongkai, Johanna Bruckner, Jonas Lund, LIU Shiyuan, !Mediengruppe Bitnik, Stine Deja, WANG NewOne, and WANG Yefeng.
Inspired by the typical “swipe right to like, swipe left to dislike” mechanism, the exhibition is divided into two spaces of pink and blue, with two different exhibition routes on the left and right.
When we are in the era of big data under artificial intelligence, how should we face increasingly humanised artificial intelligence technologies? Does artificial intelligence really have love?
AI: Love and Artificial Intelligence may have the answers. The exhibition runs until January 3, 2021.
