Science Museum IMAX Cinema

A retrospective of the boundary-pushing work of Austrian artist Rainer Kohlberger.

Working across live performance, installation and film, Kohlberger creates visceral audiovisual experiences through the manipulation of algorithmically generated imagery, interrogating the fertile intersection between art and science.

Tackling subject matter such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, neuroscience and digital utopias, these films offer visceral 21st century psychedelia.

Rainer joins us in conversation with fellow AI artist Anna Ridler and experts in the fields of artificial intelligence and neuroscience. Programmed by Tom Grimshaw. Tickets £5. 57’

  • IT HAS TO BE LIVED ONCE AND DREAMED TWICE

    Rainer Kohlberger 28 mins (AT, 2019)

    After the sixth great mass extinction, humankind has disappeared from the Earth. But new life awakes and tries to understand - and then it discovers the film history of humanity.
  • HUMMING, FAST AND SLOW

    Rainer Kohlberger 11 mins (AT, 2013)

    60 hertz, 24bit colours and a few million pixels create the illusion of a continuous event.
  • NOT EVEN NOTHING CAN BE FREE OF GHOSTS

    Rainer Kohlberger 10 mins (AT, 2016)

    Rainer Kohlberger’s abstract film was created entirely without a camera. Through digital algorithms, he precisely arranged a rhythm of light and shadow that pulsates off the screen into our physical space with blinding intensity.
  • KEEP THAT DREAM BURNING

    Rainer Kohlberger 8 mins (AT, 2017)

    keep that dream burning begins with extremely fine black-and-white particles that flutter across the screen. Coagulating into rough structures, they transform into a storm of jagged artifacts and steadily changing spots of light.
