PLATFORM: Rainer Kohlberger
19:00 Mon 13 Jan 2020
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’
