data scrying and neural artworks

Hito Steyerl's works "This is the Future" and "Leonardo's Submarine" showed at the Venice Biennale until November, using a neural video system we developed for political pyromancy. They are viewable at NBK in Berlin until January. Earlier this year, Power Plants showed at the Serpentine Gallery in London.

Sonifications of Gun Violence was the soundtrack to Hito Steyerl's Drill at the Park Avenue Armory in New York City. We sonified mass shooting data to compose melodies, which were then performed by synthesist Bethany Barrett and the Yale University Precision Marching Band. We have made sheet music available to any marching band that is interested in performing this material.

Working with Holly Herndon on neural audio for her album PROTO. Watch the video for Godmother (with Jlin).

The Auctioneer and Siren were included in NeurIPS Creativity Workshop, 2018.

Hito Steyerl's The City of Broken Windows is presented at the Castello di Rivoli in Turin, Italy, in the Manica Lunga gallery, for which we used machine learning to recreate the sound of breaking glass.

Collaborating with Adam Harvey on MegaPixels, exploring face recognition datasets. Our work was recently featured on the front page of the New York Times.

Magisphere - "Theta-5" C20 on LFO Lobster

Recorded live in 2019, this is a document of Magisphere's descent to the ocean floor to locate the troubled underwater research platform Theta-5. Barely any light reaches these benthic depths, where the station sits mysteriously empty, its consoles still glowing with the last commands entered before the crew disappeared. Following a trail of clues, Magisphere descend further past luminous jellyfish into the caverns of an undersea volcano, where they uncover the final secret of Theta-5.
