Called 'Other World' it is the work of Cherry Manga, Anley Piers & Elfe Imako
"Mankind created the machine and always wanted to improve it, adding abilities, and even gave the machine artificial intelligence.
The machine had its own evolution, once it gained artificial intelligence it grew to possess artificial consciousness then the collective consciousness. The machine grew up through many aeons, learned from its own mistakes.
The machine is now in the other world, all parts of the machine are closely bounded, if a little robot cuts itself, the sadness is shared by the entire machine. The machine lives in harmony in the environment it is set, all energy needs are calculated to keep and preserve the world, nothing is taken freely from nature, the machine looks after nature, conscious that its energy depends on the global health of its natural environment.
This way of living is what humankind could call utopia or eden.
This exhibition shows the irony of machine beings, supposed to be heartless and without emotional feelings able to live in respect of its environment, and in harmony with all members of its community ... and the sad conclusion that human beings in 2011 are still fighting for power, for money, for religion, not able to think of the future of our children, continuously draining all that earth can give."
I haven't been there yet...but I will...soonish... RL is wasting my time, currently...
