Trained on a dataset of human articulations of their democratic future entangled with technology, the Tech for Democracy artwork is a futuristic speculation into the utopias and dystopias of tomorrow. The 30 meter long large scale immersive installation, which premiered at the center of the United Nation’s UN City in Copenhagen, employs artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning algorithms in the generation of its own speculative futures in a manner that pushes past the limitations of our collective imaginations.
