Daemon LED
Light installation
Machines and artificial intelligence have permeated virtually every aspect of our lives and consistently are about to conquer the last bastions of human autonomy. The rational efficiency of high technology has irrevocably installed in our daily lives and their abstract semantics invades and replaces human communication. At all major intersections of our society, binary guards are installed to constantly review the decisions made by humans and to evaluate if there is insufficient logic. And if not, to override the human decision immediately with an optimized solution. This artificial logic achieves an error rate never to be attained for an emotionally controlled consciousness. Do machines represent the more contemporary, ultimately perhaps even better humanoids and mankind gradually gets absorbed by this perfect system?

Derived from the developed logic of the same-titled reactive audio-visual installation, “Daemon LED” visualizes the rational beauty of infinite planned tasks and processes of an artificial intelligence.
