‘This exhibition is an opportunity to experience works of art produced with the help of increasingly sophisticated robots. Featuring works by some forty artists, it offers a gateway to an immersive and interactive digital world – an augmented body sensory experience that subverts our notions of space and time.
Robots are becoming invisible. Powered by computer programs and algorithms, technology is disappearing in favour of infinitely generated forms that can change according to our physical movements. Rather than moving from reality to dreams, or from the material to the virtual, artists are experimenting with new technologies. Their palette is a canvas with numbers in unlimited combinations. The issue of tempo is fundamental, and everything moves very fast, with thought immediately followed by action. Forms emerge from the computer in real time; images proliferate, fade away and give way to others, which metamorphose in turn’.
