Technology touches our lives constantly. Our society and each of us as an individual have become so reliant on it that it’s almost impossible to imagine what life would be like without it. Two of the most vibrant and widely discussed emerging technologies are Virtual Reality (VR) and Artificial Intelligence (AI). Recently, major advances have been made to enhance VR and AI, bringing them together to create a single form of technology that offers seemingly endless possibilities. Two projects in our Lff Expanded programme deal with the deployment of those technologies on an artistic level: Anna West and David Callahan’s To Miss The Ending, and Pietro Gagliano’s Agence. The creators will talk about their projects and contrasting approaches to employing Artificial Intelligence within their immersive works.

With Anna West, David Callahan (To Miss the Ending), Pietro Gagliano, David Oppenheim (Agence)
