inside foundry-turned-art-venue atelier des lumieres, the light, sound and sheer, monumental scale of three inagural exhibitions are luring in audiences. in one exhibit, gustav klimt’s work drips like melted gold from the lips of an ensnared couple, down to the flowery floor. in an exhibit by OUCHHH — poetic AI — geometric infinity patterns explode in humongous scale on the walls, ceiling and floor. these patterns and forms are an AI’s translation of no less than 20 million lines of text.

new media agency ‘OUCHHH,’ created an AI to visualize countless stories, books and articles, 20 million or so lines of text — all written by scientists who changed the world. physics, space-time, light, theory — the AI learned from these ideas and thus, OUCHHH created a scientific-conscious poetic refraction.

at atelier des lumières in paris, 136 projectors shine a dreamlike journey. the light, the darkness, the movements: all of it is an algorithm making sense of something we could never understand, an AI, dancing in the dark to the sound of old words — an AI trying to show us connections we could never see otherwise. poetic AI.
