Jukka Hautamäki: LOG

A meditative work, which temps the viewer to question artificial intelligence and the definition of art.

Log is a modern open fire, which meditatively tells stories about light art and the physical properties of light. These stories, created by artificial intelligence, initially seem to make sense but gradually the listener realises that they cross a line, becoming nonsensical. The work challenges the viewer to contemplate the accuracy of information generated with artificial intelligence and the boundaries for the definitions of art.
