STREAM by ALINA RIZESCUInformation streams and natural streams have a similar dynamic. The stream and the user are influencing each other in an organic continuous way.
SENTIENTIA by DORIN CUCICOV This installation expands on the impact of technological advancement on human emotions and social interactions. The project is the result of a research conducted at the International Center for Research and Education in Innovative Creative Technologies(CINETic) in Bucharest by MA student Dorin Cucicov under the coordination of Alexandru Berceanu.
HUMAN STORIES by MARTIAL GEOFFRE-ROULANDDigital art installation, exploiting more than 30,000 video streams in real time, with the aid of a bot that is constantly looking for human presence, using artificial intelligence. Trying to tell us a story through the eyes of the computer, this installation makes us think about our own privacy in our ultra-connected society. A matrix of 12 screens is displayed on a wall, showing live streams from unprotected cameras. All these streams are analysed in real time using machine learning – trying to detect whether there is human activity. As soon as humans are detected into a stream, they are displayed onto one of the screens, letting the visitor step into a curious voyeur position.PHOTOSYNTHESIZER by ITPMA Year One 2019A hybrid technological-organic object that transforms touch and light into sound sequences. Photosynthesizer explores the theme of co-creation between human, nature and technology. Interaction with human input and environmental factors produces different sets of sounds, which mirror the plant’s physiological state. Play the artificial leaves with your hand or any metallic object. Meanwhile, the humidity and temperature in the soil will select the sounds that are available to you.
Looking forward to welcoming you all at CINETic this weekend!Follow us on Facebook for live updates.Free access for the public (based on seating availability)
