twist

Dance-twist twisted, discoveries and distortions, the transmutation of age-old drama, the love love love, GAIA data boom, old space traveller Copernicus streams data, cross-border cross-human AI, tautologic tantrums of the real, n dimensions multiverse, quarks and pebbles on a shore, oracles instead of horoscopes, silicon talking unfathomable sense, no sense a tiny Turing stumble, twist into hyperspace, stars awaiting entanglement, how will you twist into this bouquet of futures?

Then the twist, maybe into nothingness like dark matter, oscillographs murmuring of quanta, a primordial twist like soup or a quantum twist, new horizons arising where least expected, Big Sun Big Data new patterns, the old transmuting into unrecognisable, yet life is love is loot is the question of intelligence still unanswered violence: Eve hanging on a cross, love as the trick of finding what you didn’t lose, limitless, or will we resort to violence, again, again blotting out the hominescent beckoning future, the pains of becoming staining the day staining history, twist reboot the mind five minutes of nothing, then again newly veering off off, old violence persisting, old ghosts resurging in new intelligence this work is always illimitably new in each life, yours, the shape-shifting dance a conspiracy between silicon and evolution, we twist into the future asking oracles but why would the future be different or distorted less than human more than human is human a twist in progress?

The work aims to expose the creation of an Artificial Intelligence and its workings to a general public, dealing with the bias within programming, the notion of losing control in a world supervised by machines and the utopia of creating an all-knowing Big Data oracle.
The program creates text and music based on the public ́s input, based upon which an opera singer is improvising.

A Portrait of the AI as a Young Cyber Oracle

A portrait of the AI as a young Cyber Oracle aims to expose the creation of an Artificial Intelligence and its workings to a general public, dealing with the bias within programming, the notion of losing control in a world supervised by machines and the utopia of creating an all-knowing Big Data oracle. It wants to investigate, understand and expose our own relationship towards technology and how humans have always looked for the “ghost in the machine”. A unique algorithm was programmed as part of the project. It utilises the open source code already available, e.g.
