The Beall Center announces their exhibition opening of Emergence: Art and Artificial Life, curated by David Familian and Simon Penny. Works include Propagaciones by Leo Nuñez, a sculptural realization of one of the icons of artificial life, the cellular automaton; Marc Böhlen's Universal Whistling Machine which deploys AI techniques to present an amusing take on machine intelligence; Performative Ecologies by Ruairi Glynn consisting of a trio of “dancing fools” - devices that seek to demonstrate the most pleasing dance they can devise; and Karolina Sobecka’s Sniff an interactive projection of a curious dog. The exhibit’s interactive sculptures offer insight into a different dimension of artificial life. For more information go to www.beallcenter.uci.edu or call (949)824-4339.
“Emergence” features international artists exploring the biological and computational manifestations of emergent behavior. These dynamically changing, interactive sculptures illustrate the rich variety of mutating systems and their ability to adapt to a changing world.
