Spiritus Artificialis
The project looks at the evolution of technology from a mythological and magical perspective, focusing on predictions that artificial intelligence will one day surpass humans and become a near omnipotent presence. The project will manifest in four parts:  Firstly a monumental spherical structure titled “cosmic egg” made from motherboards, with a yolk made of computer screens. A triptych series of performances accompany the structure. The first, titled “The Oracle” is a video in which the coming of the artificial spirit is predicted, the second, a video titled “Genesis” where the spirit comes into existence. The third, titled “The Ensoulment” will be performed live during the exhibition opening and is a ritual to impregnate the cosmic egg with the artificial soul.
