Refik Anadol: „Machine Hallucinations“
Machine Hallucinations : Nature Dreams
Imagining nature as a totality that fills the gaps in our otherwise narrow perception of the cosmos lies at the heart of Anadol’s Nature Dreams – a series of synaesthetic reality experiments based on GAN algorithms developed by artificial intelligence.
Applying machine learning to 46,474,696 million images and creating a dataset that transforms into a collective latent cinematic experience, the piece commemorates the beauty of this land we share. The final immersive artwork incorporates pigments, shapes,
and patterns that we associate with our sensory experiences with nature while paying homage to its unbound poetic sublimity.
