INTRO

Science fiction writers, artists and scientists have developed many ideas about alternative life-forms. Growing information about the universe, accelerated by machine learning, deep learning and other forms of artificial intelligence, has increased speculation about the possibility of other intelligent life. It clear that AI holds the potential to discover new worlds and life previously unnoticed and unseen by more traditional ways of observation.  Many have speculated and even theorized about the best methods for detecting life and communicating with distant intelligences. What kind of communication can bridge the possible gaps of time, experience, and biology? What is worth saying?  Sci-Fi movies like Close Encounters of the Third explore communication through light and sound. The genius of John Williams’ score coupled with the breathtaking visual effects when humans start to communicate with the mothership through light and sound is nearly impossible to forget. Photonic goodness galore. PROJECT DESCRIPTION De Wilde’s CHROMAi takes root in colour field art movement, minimalism, sci-fi movies and technological developments like AI. He starts with seemingly simple questions to explore communication, and how it can take shape. Can one create a multi-sensory and immersive experience with one pixel/signal? What are the limits of AI? What is simulated and what is not? And so on … The result is an immersive and audiovisual chromatic experience that explores the power of one pixel enhanced by artificial intelligence; exploring the increasingly blurring of fact and fiction in contemporary society mediated by technology in the post-anthropocene.
