LA NOTTE DEI TEMPI
curated by Walter Guadagnini
The title of the exhibition is inspired by a novel written by René Barjavel. This science fiction story relates a French expedition in Antarctica, revealing the ruins of a 900,000 years old civilization that is more advanced than our own. This exhibition creates some imaginary connections with the origins of the civilization through fragments of the past and visions of the future.
Justine Emard creates displays to explore the relation between our existences and technology. She explores a crossing between robotics, objects, artificial intelligence and life, based on deep learning experiences and human-machine dialogues.
Japan is one of her source of inspiration since the relation with the objects is very special due to the animism concept of Shintoism. She collaborates since 2016 with scientists and robot makers to question the relation between humans and machine and open new perspectives for the future.
The exhibition is composed by five different projects: The Birth of the Robots, The Ice People, Reborn, Co(AI)xistence and Soul Shift.
