‘Rise of the machines’ by Steve Gerges

Rise of the machines is a kinetic light installation dealing with artificial intelligence and robots awakening.

“Rise of the machines” is a reflection based on the concepts of artificial intelligence (AI) and the different consequences this could have on our future lives.
The concept develops around a representation of factory robots working in accordance within their daily routine. At one point, one robot becomes conscious and “wakes up” through AI and contaminates / connects with other robots to the point where they take control of their movement and life.

The installation was released at the multiplica Festival in february 2017 in Luxembourg.
