NEW YORK, July 19, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — “Unlimited AI” by renowned contemporary Turkish artists Ferdi Alici and Eylul Alici of Ouchhh Studio (Istanbul) — the creators of the award-winning global sensation “Poetic AI,” seen by millions around the world — officially bow to New York City on Thursday July 28. “Limitless AI” marks the official opening of Arts District Brooklyn, a state-of-the-art immersive and experiential art venue located in Greenpoint (25 Franklin Street). David Galpern and Charles Roy (Torontotheater and live entertainment producers) are co-founders and executive producers of the new entertainment destination in town.
For ArtsDistrict Brooklyn (aka AD/BK), Ferdi & Eylul Alici have reinvented and expanded their original “Poetic AI” work as “Limitless AI”, a 60-minute show, and for the first time, bring together five chapters of their work in which the audience moves freely in a vast space of swirling color and light, with images appearing and disappearing in a visual and auditory sensation that has captivated visitors from around the world. “Limitless AI” was created from large datasets of paint, science and nature that were fed into an artificial intelligence algorithm that learned to create New works derived from these sources — 15 billion Leonardo DeVinci paintings and brushstrokes, and millions of physics textbooks from Galileo to stephen hawking. The finale of “Limitless AI,” titled Superstrings, is an interactive work that features a live musical performance at every show. Ouchhh Studio’s AI computer collaborates with musicians and audience members to create real-time art. Each screening of “Limitless AI” will be different, never to repeat again.
“Unlimited AI” presents itself as a Immersive 10,000 square foot experience and offers more than 60 4K laser projectors from Barco, with state-of-the-art sound design by Meyer Sound. The five chapters are:
- Poetic AIthe famous Parisian exhibition of Ouchhh in 2018
- Leonardo DeVinci: Light AI Wisdomshowcasing artificial intelligence’s own expression of the works of Leonardo DeVinci and the great Italian masters of the Renaissance
- Data gatepresenting research from NASA’s Kepler Space Telescope
- dark machinescontaining data collected from Large Hadron Collider at CERN
- Superstrings, a live musical performance at each show with a real-time projection of the performer’s brain activity
