APORIA is a virtual world and negotiates the sociological processes of closed and open societies. 30-60 individuals with their very own artificial intelligence (AI) inhabit the world of APORIA in the form of human avatars. Through complex algorithms, these AIs are able to explore their environment and decide on individual actions. All subjects follow daily human routines until the moment when a ‚disturbance‘ in the form of a stranger appears. The dynamics coming into force now are the central topic of this work.
Biography Patricia Detmering
Patricia Detmering was born in 1980 in the former GDR. She combines personal memories with artistic means and philosophical references to createmedia installations. She uses digital media such as 3D animations and live simulations, often shown in immersive environments consisting of found objects, sculptures, paintings, and drawings, that are rendered complicit within the overall narrative of the installation. In her recent work, she tries to blur the fine line between the digital and analog worlds by pushing both to the edge of dissolution. In her search for unknown narratives, she is currently working with virtual reality in combination with artificial intelligence.
