Event details

AMT is hosting an open artist talk and a seminar by Egor Kraft who is a research fellow at University of Southampton as part of the STARTS residency program funded by the European Union. A graduate of the Strelka institute, Moscow, Egor’s work and research involves artificial information systems, computational technologies, films, interventions often in conjunction with traditional media. As part of his research based practice he tends to develop speculative narratives questioning co-existence of human irrational reasoning and a ubiquitous impartial and quantitative orders rendered by machinic agencies. For the project “Content Aware Studies” Kraft produced a set of synthetic 3D printed and marble CNC routed copies of the remnants of ancient Greek and Roman sculptures, mobilizing machine learning as part of this speculative inquiry.
