Translation of Complexity @ AA Collections

translation-of-complexity_website-850x566.jpg

Mosaic Virus is part of the Translation of Complexity exhibition at AA collections in Vienna, alongside work by Morehshin Allahyari. Both of our works show how art can disentangle complexity. Complexity will not go away but the pieces featured in the show allow the viewer to understand fragments and different perspectives through historical references and unknown mythology. New input and context gives room for new solutions and possibilities.


Gradient Descent @ Nature Morte

Nature Morte presented a group exhibition featuring works created by seven artists using artificial intelligence. I am showing Fall of the House of Usher. The exhibition has been curated by 64/1, an art curation and research collective founded by artist Raghava KK and economist Dr. Karthik Kalyanaraman, Gradient Descent, explores the intersection between artificial intelligence and contemporary art. Bringing together artists who address how contemporary art can create a dynamic human-machine relationship, this groundbreaking exhibition provides us with a vision of what art could be in the post-human age.

The show has been covered in the Hindu, Vogue India, the Financial Times and Forbes India

Inspired by an abandoned idea of Walt Disney's to build natural history cinemas in zoos, Nature's Nickelodeons is a live cinema experience that will be premiered at Sheffield Doc Fest. I've been with filmmaker and Doctor of GeoHumanities Amy Cutler to re-invent the nature broadcasts through the use of a neural net.
