Sysco Productions and Outernet demonstrate the potential of generative AI for the creation of immersive experiences. This project is the outcome of a unique partnership with University College London and Goldsmiths, University of London.
Sysco Productions, in partnership with Outernet, have challenged students and alumni from Goldsmiths’ Computational Arts and UCL’s Digital Media masters courses to produce short digital immersive experiences in a week, using a wide range of generative AI platforms and Sysco’s unique Audio Visual Simulation Technology, which created an exact digital twin of Outernet’s Now Trending space.
This has led to the creation of 7 bold new works, which were showcased at Outernet on the 5th September, followed by an expert panel discussion on the implications of this experiment for the future of the immersive experience industry, hosted by Chris Michaels.Next: The Technology
False Witness by Flo Yuting Zhu
Wildlife trail cam, true crime footage, AI forgery and a brewing thunderstorm scripts a horror montage. The off-screen presence of the ‘witnesses’ and their complicity are invoked by a fluid drifting of content between surveillance, documentary, and fiction. What makes evidence? What accounts for truth? Most importantly – what are you looking at?
Evolution Express by Ziyi Kang & Keyu Ye
Evolution Express is an AI-assisted artwork visualizing the past, present, and future. The artwork covers a range of topics from the Big Bang, cell division, celestial movement, and transformation of all kinds. This immersive journey challenges viewers' perceptions of time, space, and self-awareness, leaving them with an unforgettable artistic experience.
Fragmented Echoes of Time by Camila Colussi
The artwork reflects on the rapid rise of generative AI content towards a fragmented experience of time. The possibility of immediate results compresses time and skips the process, the journey, and the becoming. However, standing in front of a landscape is usually described as a lingering timeless experience, where its beauty and magnificence makes you stop and contemplate.
Hidden Information by Songqi Sun
"Hidden Information" blends the complexities of information overload into a symphony of music and visuals. Encrypted messages symbolizing the deluge of data in our digital age initiates a melodic journey, while AI techniques infuse harmonious chords. Dynamic visuals mirror the emotional cadence, creating a vivid exploration of the information landscape.
From my Rib: The Amazon - The Next Genesis by Maria Gracia Cebrecos
In the digital realm of Cybersphere, Gracia, an AI filled with grace, though not very advanced and with a humanoid touch, created a virtual Eden, mirroring one of Earth's most beautiful places: The Amazon Rainforest. This is now the Amazon, right now right here, the other one doesn’t exist.
Encased Mirage by Zhongkai Wang
The "Encased Mirage" project stands as a testament to the intersection of digital art and environmental aesthetics, rendering a meticulously detailed rainforest ecosystem contained within a glass box set within an artiﬁcially darkened room. Using AIGC, PCG and UE5, this project encapsulates the convergence of sophisticated technology and nuanced artistic interpretation.
Beyond the Glass by DNA Studio
In a dystopian future, a courageous young woman embarks on a journey that unfolds as she shatters the glass, forging a path of empowerment for herself and inspiring others. The video-art portrays the difficult reality women face in their quest for senior positions and acknowledgement, reflecting on the future of women in the workplace.
This panel was a chance for an industry audience to hear about these new work methods from the creators who’ve made these fantastic art pieces, and for them to discuss the creative approaches that they’ve learnt from being involved in this project, to reflect on the different tools they used and how AI began to influence and change their way of working.
