Émilie Brout & Maxime Marion – Better Not Tell You Now at Link Cabinet

The Link Art Center is proud to present Better Not Tell You Now, a new work by Émilie Brout & Maxime Marion. The show will be online at Link Cabinet from March 8 to April 7, 2017.   Better Not Tell You Now is a generative video created and presented for the first time at Link Cabinet. Using machine learning technology the artists trained an artifical intelligence with a database of forty thousand messages from Reddit, the renowned social news aggregator and discussion website. Going through subreddits like Conspiracy, Philosophy and Futurology, the artists selected messages and discussions focused mainly on Artificial Intelligence and Singularity. Starting from this wide database the work automatically generates a recombinant text, always new and unique. The images displayed on the background are loaded in real-time, searched for keywords related to the text. (more…)
