Hybrid Ecosystems (2021)
Entangled Others Studio (Sofia Crespo & Feileacan McCormick)
At first glance, digital images and virtual worlds – as produced by computational processes – are seen as separate from our physical world. We tend to see the man-made, or artificial, as divided from the natural world. In reality, virtual systems are inextricably linked to a material origin of computers, data, servers, infrastructure and the energy they require. The video installation Hybrid Ecosystems was created by developing an artificial intelligence trained on both natural and technological objects. The self-learning system now produces its own reimagination of what such a hybrid ecosystem could look and sound like.
