collectie centraal, centraal museum
220 x 200 x 30
ingredients: plexiglass, mirror, 3d print, touchball, led light, arduino, two screens, computer, clip interrogator, text to image ai

draws from the museum's dataset of 70,000 objects. using artificial intelligence, it combines two objects from the database to create a new image.

archive.dweller is a portal to the unique mindset of this open-source AI, revealing the texts extracted by the machine from the images.
the algorithmic interpretations and associations (normally concealed) of the artworks are often factually incorrect, sometimes poetic, occasionally style-breaking but above all, they are infinitely diverse.
the process of combining two artworks results in giving a contemporary twist to seventeenth-century paintings, while rietveld's chairs, for example, can suddenly take on a picturesque context.

the archive.dweller has been created by telemagic  for centraal museum, and you can see it as part of collectie centraal until 2026.
