Pastorale, one of the installations from the exhibtion by Ludmila Belova

Human life is changing rapidly. The speed of life is changing, the philosophy of life is changing. New technologies are intruding into everyday life everywhere, and the human world is merging with the digital world. A smooth fusion with this world, the transition from human to hybrid can be seen in the example of the emergence of our virtual avatars, nicknames, “our ID” and the inability to function without our smartphones and computers. The relationship with artificial intelligence becomes familiar even at the household level, starting from communication with the navigator and living in a “smart home”.

Artificial intelligence is already able to manage numerous processes in people’s lives, in technical, political and scientific spheres. Around the world, scientists are working on projects to digitalize the brain and create self-learning artificial neural networks that will become the basis of super intelligence. Forecasts of the relationship between human and artificial super-intelligence give rise to various scenarios of the future and arouse great curiosity and at the same time, the natural fear of the unknown. As in a fairy tale, a magic wand can transfer you to a palace, turning a pumpkin into a carriage, just like a selfie stick, its modern equivalent, takes you to the digital world, where you can also turn into a pumpkin or anything you want to.

“Girl Digit” (figurine of the 50s) walks in a strange space. This virtual, or real world for her, illuminates artificial light, bright robots fly in it. In her hand is a stick-selfie for photographing herself and everything around. Object “Digit in the Forest”.

“Cloned” (printed on a 3D printer) copies of her dance in a glade of pixel grass to the music of Jean-Baptiste Lyuli and the singing of electronic birds, without being embarrassed by their sameness and different scale. Installation “Pastorale”.

The field for modelling 3D objects combines two pictures presented at the exhibition. Memory and modelling of the past in the picture “Modelling of Memories”. Contrasting, combining, merging or absorbing – thinking about these processes occurs in the picture “Modelling the Future”, where the images of human and artificial intelligence are presented in the form of natural and artificial neural networks.
