A3 K3 Intermedia/Trans-technological performance & interactive installation

Thursday 7 to Monday 11 September 2017

Ars Electronica, Linz, Austria

A3 K3 is a unique interactive experience. Artworks are created with machine technology and audience participation. Ilic uses an elaborate Brain Computer Interface (BCI) system where he controls a hi-tech robot with his brain via state-of-the-art technology.

Members of the audience are invited to try out the BCI technology. The artist and the audience draw and paint with the assistance of the robot over a vertical and horizontal canvas. The robotic arm is fitted with DI Drawing Devices that clamp, hold and manipulate various artistic media. They can then create attractive, large format artworks. Ilic is thus providing a context in which people will be able to enhance and augment their abilities in making art.

Thanks to the support of G.Tec and the University of Study of Palermo (Italy), Ilic will undertake further research with AI systems/Human interaction in the process of making art.2017 Ars Electronica Festival September 7-11, Linz will host an exciting, comprehensive confrontation with the reality and the vision of artificial intelligence. Symposia, exhibitions, performances, workshops and artistic interventions will elaborate in depth on its cultural, psychological, philosophical and spiritual dimensions. Consideration of the essence of a future artificial intelligence created by human beings will also be the point of departure of a process of reflection about ourselves, our weaknesses and strengths—in short, about what makes us human.
