Semeion is an interactive ever-evolving light and sound installation exploring artificial intelligence from an aesthetic point of view. Each of the large glowing structures reacts individually and collectively to human presence and movement, almost as if they have become self-aware and seek human attention in order to learn from and with humans. As such, the expressions of the structures continuously evolve so that they over time develop their own individual personalities. When exhibiting at Roskilde Festival, the structures have already developed personalities through interaction with the crowds at SXSW and Click Festival. How will the Roskilde crowd affect them?
Semeion is created by Circuit Circus, a Copenhagen-based art and design studio that focuses on creating novel and curious encounters with technology. It is commissioned by Catch and Roskilde Festival, and supported by the Danish Ministry of Culture and Ministry of Foreign Affairs and their joint effort “Danish Arts in USA”.
