Latent Being



Latent Being was a site-specific large-scale installation by media artist Refik Anadol, a pioneer in the aesthetics of artificial intelligence, that responded to the cathedral-like concrete vastness of Kraftwerk Berlin, a former East Berlin power-plant.

Visitors were invited to walk through an immersive and interactive environment, in which data relating to the city, the architecture and the visitors were transformed into hallucinogenic, large-scale AI data paintings displayed on LED walls. By using a cutting-edge deep learning algorithm to create this interactive AI-human constellation, Anadol’s work challenged our perception of ‘space’ and our relationship with AI entities.

Through his use of data that flows around us as his primary material and the neural network of a computerised mind as his collaborator, Anadol offers us radical visualisations of our digitised memories and expands the possibilities of architecture, narrative, and the body in motion.
