Computers In Love

The installation “Computers Falling In Love” is a conversation between two machines, who get to know each other and learn about the personality of their partner. Caught in a feedback loop, they listen and talk to each other in visual patterns, potentially developing deeper feelings for each other. This work reflects on the relationship beween humans and machines - between people and technology. It poses the question how human computers can be. He has developed several variations of the same topic, resulting in a series of installations. The computers face each other, or themselves in a mirror, or also just their reflection on the floor. They all have the same simple instructions: show what you see. Their camera image is shown on the screen, and this simple instruction leads to a pulsating pattern when facing each other (or facing themselves).
